Although the guard forbids the children to play in a life-threatening area, they ignore the prohibition. While chasing naughty, he falls into a deep hole, but instead of looking for help, the children decide that there is a place for him. Only Christian has a different opinion than his friends. But how to do it right? After all, he promised to keep the secret.
