Summary

A story from modern Prague that tells of the fates of three friends, who know each other from their school years. Their relationships seem idyllic, hardly anyone from their neighbourhood however suspects, that all of them have secrets, which influence their subsequent fates. The title comes from a concept, that represents a cute plush teddy bear, but also a predatory beast.
