Plot synopsis
In the reality-tv show "Pioneer camp", five girls and five boys are selected to compete for a grand prize of one million rubels. The ten adolescences are being sent to an abandon Soviet summer camp in the woods outside Moscow. The rules are simple; every week one kid have to leave and the last man standing gets to win the first prize. So it seemed. Instead a man with a horse face turns up informing the prize is now about survival. In this blood breaking movie we follow this horse face man and his ways of realizing the horror stories of his Soviet childhood.
