During lunch at the school cafeteria, three 11-year-old boys did not fail to notice the mysterious Eliz. It turns out each of them has heard of the girl before. She seems to be the main antagonist of various horror stories. The stories differ in genre but one thing is certain – Eliz treats the feelings of others in a rather peculiar manner. Are these stories based on facts? Or are they embellished by the boundless imagination of the storytellers?
