During summer holidays, on a hot August day, NIKO(10), NIA(9), LEVANCHO(9) and the local village boy LEKO(10) go to the river secretly from their parents. They find a dead body next to the river. Kids think that the man is drunk and are trying to wake him up playfully. With NIKO’s initiative they decide to throw the man in the river to wake him up and have fun. The body thrown in the river begins to rumble. The fast river takes the corpse away and scared kids are running after it along the river, while ineffectively trying to pull it out.
