There is a village where the weather has stopped. There is a village where silence continues without interruption: you will not hear flies buzzing, wind whistling through the rye in the fields, or a carriage passing. There is a village in which there are no children, where no cow had calves for many years, and hens do not lay eggs. The birth and death mechanism has stopped. No new families are created. Half of the houses are empty, because only the strongest stayed here. And none of the residents are normal.
Will the most pompous wedding of Ziūnia and Siutek interrupt the power of silence, revive the local community and end the dead season? Will everyone live happily ever after? Or maybe an upcoming apocalypse is unstoppable? Only one thing is clear: an uninvited wedding guest entered the door: “evil”.
