Three friends are on a hiking trip. From the top of the mountain, they have a view down onto the area where they live, and they see something strange. One of the neighbors gets into a fight with a stranger in the garden. The person who is attacked falls over, lifeless.
The boys don't dare contact the police themselves, but instead end up at a fortuneteller who reads tarot cards. The fortuneteller looks into the future and warns them not to get involved.
And yet they feel like they have to check. Is there a corpse in the neighbor's shed?
