Andrei, a member of a group of Soviet troops in Germany, is ordered to return to Russia. It remains only to buy a car and, together with his beloved wife Marina, hit the road home by car. At one of the sections of the road, the spouses are stopped by police captain Malkov for checking documents. In the same second, bandits appear from nowhere and attack the passengers of a brand new foreign car. In an unequal battle, Marina dies, and Andrei is seriously injured. The hero still finds the strength to get to the nearest police station to report a crime. But the first who catches his eye is Malkov himself. Realizing that all efforts are in vain, Andrei leaves. However, the bandits are already aware of the surviving witness of the attack on the road, and they begin to hunt for the officer. Now he is alone against the whole gang.
