There's only one way out of business, out of life...
Pretentious movies about the crime fighters were in full swing. When a fair man cross the line and became a thief of socialistic property? Does that things(Marlboro, olives) you can get on the crime way , really cost the freedom you risked for? Questions like this is try to answer this soviet flick.
Jenya (Mikhail Dolginin) is simple taxi driver, pick the strange passenger, an old captain of far raids (Pavel Kadochnikov). Captain ask him to wait until he check out the friend's car. Suddenly Jenya became a collateral of the car hijacking. But Capt. make accent how easy that was, and that cooperation promise the big perspectives. When you got money you can take your girl to restaurant, feed her olives and other unusual stuff. You can even smoke a Marlboro how many you want. And Jenya start to using the states Volga in criminal needs of Capt. But Jenya's girlfriend is good young lady and fair citizen, she try to find out what make him change.
In the same time we can follow the work of investigators that try to find a key man in the chain of mysterious crimes. You may see them not tortured anybody or calling to local party organization to ask "Is he good communist, or we may arrest him?", like western movie-makers represent their job.
You surely will see how good will win the evil, and get some portion of socialistic morality, but this is just detective. And its fun to watch.
