Karel is passionate forester who reigns his woods with tough but caring hand. In an abandoned part of the woods lurchers wake up a creature, who can be an equivalent opponent for him. In fairy tales this creature is called Leshy, but meeting it is definitely not a fairy tale. While Karel is trying to track Leshy, he is already closer than he had expected. Who will become the real ruler of the woods?
