Four young adventurers are off to chase monsters and help them find inner peace.
The series tells an adventure story of Ignacy, Emma, Filip, and Tomira, who are friends in the first year of primary school. After school, the kids pursue a strange hobby – they chase Slavic ghosts, mares, and monsters that are forced to leave their natural habitat as they are pushed away by rising civilisations. The ghosts begin to sneak into society where they pull pranks on humans. It becomes clear that the ghosts need help in finding their safe home and inner peace. The group of friends experience exciting adventures, they learn to tolerate, respect each other, and take care of nature, but most importantly, they have fun together.
