In the New Century, wolf-like laws and wolf-like appetites dominates the world. In this beautifully photographed exploration of good and evil, a middle-aged corporate manager is trapped in his stale professional and personal life. He strikes a dangerous bargain with a mysterious figure due to his hunger for a more vivid and meaningful life. Declared as "An absurdist morality tale of good and evil. ST. TONY is an absolute treat for adventurous filmgoers looking for something very different." This Kafkaesque masterpiece is directed by Veiko Öunpuu (Autumn Ball).

"The Temptation of St. Tony" is a film about a man, who has reached middle age, and finds himself in exactly the kind of darkening forest that Dante describes. An unusual problem intrudes upon his moderately prosperous and quiet life - morality. Is it possible to be a "good person"? What does that mean anyway? And what's in it for you? On his journey towards a clearer conscience but an increasingly complicated reality, Tony meets several typical specimens familiar from contemporary Estonian society and lives through exciting adventures, not without some diverting humour. And it starts to seem that slowly, and quite inevitably, the man loses his job, his family, and finally reality, itself.
Compassion incurs capital loss.
