Alexey Andreevich Pogozhev is a colonel of a special division, a former military sniper who served in different hotspots. Assisted by his colleagues Alexey manages to fulfill a special task, they arrange a contract killing with a sniper hitman Maxim Kamyshevsky (Povolotsky). The instigation is a success as the hitman accepts an advance and is put under surveillance. Alexey delivers the report about this task to General Sergey Petrovich during his briefing with Vladimir Ivanovich (Boklan), a representative of prosecutor’s office, and investigator Vladimir Ignatyevich (Maslennikov). Tatyana Vladimirovna Uvarova (Apeksimova), a state adviser, General of Tax Service, has also been invited as a consulting expert. They discuss the operation of multimillion machinations which Boris Efimovich Morin (Danilchenko), a director of a large enterprise, was involved in. It was Morin whom Kamysh contracted to murder. The case is complicated by the fact that there is a second contract to murder Morin but the hitman is unknown. Alexey is introduced to Tatyana because he is to participate in search of an unknown sniper. In the hall of his house Alexey meets Eva (Beretta), a pretty young woman who fell in love with him already in their school years. She has recently returned from the USA after almost 15-year absence. She is glad to meet Alexey and asks him round but he refuses. Detectives arrest Kamysh and Alexey offers him a deal: information in exchange for a separate cell. Kamysh agrees but he is killed by a sniper while leaving the court after the hearing. Detectives find a red ball near the left rifle, it’s a kind of “black spot”. Vladimir Ivanovich notices the same “spot” on Tanya’s desk but she has no idea where the ball came from. Alexey is appointed to guard Tanya. In her flat he finds a fire pointing device. At the meantime a group of children is getting ready for a performance in a country boarding house. Tanya’s niece Katya (Grinkiv) whose parents have both died is also in this group. Just at that spot the investigator Vladimir Ignatyevich is already waiting for Tanya disguised as a make-up artist. He beats and ties up Tatyana and offers his own deal: information received from Morin in exchange for two lives – hers and Katya’s. He shoots at Alexey who bursts into the room but the bullet hits a metal plate which the former sniper always wears protecting his heart. Alexey kills the villain and manages to defuse the explosive device placed under Katya’s carriage. Everybody is saved.
