Synopsis

The protagonists of this action film are a militia major, captain and sergeant from a provincial town somewhere in southern Russia. They go undercover as diesel truck drivers in order to investigate and neutralize a brutal gang known to be attacking drivers and stealing their cargos. The middle-aged and circumspect major, the robust captain with a penchant for operatic arias, and the sergeant dressed as a lady of loose morals form a team of excellently coordinated professionals. They strictly adhere to the rules of the game though their dangerous mission leads them along a trail of blood left by an insidious adversary. Even though mistakes can be lethal in their profession, at a certain motel they don’t recognize a group of their colleagues from a neighbouring country and give them plenty of reason to be suspicious. Understandably, the unflagging tension of their task soon enters their personal lives and private interests, mainly of the spirited captain and the shrewd sergeant. This offbeat road movie is set in a sun-baked area of the steppe with its provincial motels and recreation centres illustrative of the social level of the story.
