Cand o vede barbatul spanzurata, se impusca si moare si el. Fiul cel mare, vazandu-si parintii morti si vaca, se duce la rau sa se inece. La rau, o zana ii propune sa intretina relatii cu ea de cinci ori la rand si ii aduce familia si vaca la viata dar la al patrulea act, baiatul nu mai poate si este inecat.
