Maksym Osa

Ukraine - 1636. Someone has attacked a battalion of cossaks that were transporting the gold of the Polish king. A cossak - Maksym Osa (Wasp) - tries to find the missing gold, but soon becomes one of the main suspects. Local lord, Pshelutsky, allows the cossak to conduct the investigation to find the missing gold. All the evidence lead Osa to a werewolf who, according to the legends, inhabits the local forests. But who controls the werewolf? Lord’s daughter Marynka, his wife Helen, the lord himself, their majordomo, or the local thugs? After the murder of lady Helen, the case becomes all the more twisted. The Forest Witch has to warn Osa - don’t believe your own eyes.
