Michal’s mother’s dead body was mysterious pulled from lake Krásno several years before. Now, Michal’s father dies on the day they return. Without knowing the truth about the weird events, all that is left is anger and sadness. The father’s new wife (now a widow) behaves suspiciously, which encourages Michal and Adam to investigate.
