Police captain Yekaterina Kerzhakova travels all day around the outskirts of the small Ural village of Kerzhatsk. Everything here is familiar from childhood. She is respected by petty crooks and seasoned criminals. Katya is accustomed to lone criminal weekdays, and, it seems, nothing will change the current way of life over the years. But unexpected news dramatically change Katya's fate. Probably, for the first time in her life, she is so confused and cannot understand what to do now. Katya is pregnant. The father of the child is a married man. Mother condemns her, and for fellow villagers she becomes the object of ridicule and bullying. Everything that was near and dear became suddenly alien and hostile. With pain in her heart, Katya leaves her home and leaves for Moscow.
