Twelve-year-old Iwo lives in a small post-PGR village. The symbolic point in this deserted place is the ruined Black Mill – once the workplace of many parents. It is the whole world of Iwo and his friends. By breaking the prohibition on approaching the old mill, the children accidentally turn on its bad energy. From now on, nothing will ever be the same again.
Objects and animals begin to disappear. Adults are also disappearing. From a carefree little egoist, Iwo has to turn into a responsible, brave boy. He begins to appreciate his disabled, previously unaccepted sister – it is thanks to Mela’s supernatural abilities that the children manage to solve the mystery of the Black Mill. Together, they overcome bad energy, the community is reborn, and the inhabitants can build a new future.
