She is convinced she knows who the murderer is, but nobody believes her story. The Polish-language title, Pokot, is an obscure hunting term that refers to the count of wild animals killed. The English title, Spoor is equally unusual. It refers to the trace and tracks left behind by the hunted game. The film plot is based on a novel by the Polish writer, Olga Tokarczuk.
