Vadātājs (The Evil One)


A traveller is lost in the snow. Ahead, he sees the welcoming light of a cottage – and a beautiful young woman. But he gets more than he bargained for.

The Evil One (literally Leader, Driver) was a type of demon in Latvian mythology responsible for getting people lost. He can be either visible or invisible. If the vadātājs is in its invisible form, victim realises that he or she is walking in circles.
