Plot synopsis
As a child, Dmitry got lost in the forest, and since then he has avoided going there. Now an adult, the guy graduated from YSU and has not yet decided what to do next. The middle of July, Dmitry's friends invite him to the forest to drink vodka and eat barbecue. Already being quite drunk, they begin to stray and stumble upon a shaman tree. There is a quarrel. Warmed up by the vapors of alcohol, the guys pluck the evil on the tree, and someone is already watching them from the forest.
