The rascal Kuba takes Jirka's diary containing his inventions notes. Jirka is the only kid to stick up for the new girl at school, Míša, who wants to get back at Kuba after losing a race. A chase through the city begins, ending at some old gates that shut behind the fleeing Kuba. He subsequently breaks out of the gate and runs away screaming. What so scary behind the gate that can scare even the tough Kuba? The next day, the kids set out to uncover the mystery and discover that someone is watching them… Everything is connected to the name Mendel, but who can it be?
