Contemporary horror story harking back to the times when Moscow was ravaged by the plague and thousands of persons died. It all starts in the 18th century, when a thief who stole an envelope that he did not deliver is accused of being the cause of the disease and about to be burnt alive. Cut to the present and it is a young chauffeur's turn to deliver an envelope under similar circunstances. It is a story about messengers, appointments with death, guilt, innocence, redemption and vanity with all the usual clichés of international horror cinema, which would had benefited from some spices of Russian culture to make it different and probably more fascinating. Entertaining and more intriguing than scary, but lacking any special distinction.
