Alan and his girlfriend Sarah begin to play it, which ends in disastrousness - the boy was absorbed in the game, and Sarah, then, was treated by a psychiatrist. After a few years, the game is found by children who settled in Alan's old house. But they do not read the rules and do not take it seriously. A new phase of the game begins. Various animals penetrate our world, strange phenomena occur. Along with this, Alan returns to our world, who has been in the game for more than 20 years.
