Army captain escorting in part-deserter soldier. The heroes spend a day in Moscow, during which face the realities of life in the modern metropolis: sometimes comical, sometimes tragic.

"The pain can be relieved.", says the doctor to Ignat, however, his illness is incurable. The medical officers call it "migraine", but what bores into the brain of the hardened officer, is a conscience and desperation for which he and his environment the concept is absent.

Mafia, police and military reflect each other in corruption and brutality "Now they are really strict up there. Everybody is fed up with the sloppiness." assure the commanders of both state authorities toward Ignat, who refuse to accept the corrosion of the system.
