Dirty money gives no happiness but blood and pain. Nikolay Eryomin (Milovanov) is a neighborhood police inspector and a gamekeeper in one of the mountain regions in Russia. When his wife died several years ago, his friend Andrey (Trubiner) failed to help him but now he is the owner of a small mountain hotel and has the opportunity to back his friend. On their way from his mother-in-laws funeral local man Igor (Savochkin), his wife Zina (Panova) and her brother Oleg (Marchenko) on the mountain road find a car swept by mud stream with two dead bodies and a huge bag full of money. Igor makes up his mind to take money despite Oleg and Zinas timid objections. They take the bag and hide it in their crawl place. Next day Igor asks his friend Sergey (Nikitin) to help him and to tow his stalled lorry. When they arrive, Sergey notices the car with the dead bodies and decides to inform Eryomin but Igor who lost his head because of huge easy money, kills him and pushes his car with the body over the cliff. In the evening Sergeys wife Marina (Samaeva) comes to Igor and Zina but their behavior alarms her and she starts to suspect that something has happened. Igor kills the woman and throws her body into the crawl place of her house where Eryomin finds the corpse. He also starts to suspect Igor and tells Andrey about his suspicions. At the place of the car accident Eroymin meets two men who introduce themselves as Security Service officers and tell about disappeared money allegedly stolen by criminals. Eryomin brings them to Igor who refuses everything. In the morning the last act of the drama takes place on the mountain road. At the last moment Andrey manages to save his friend and they disarm the criminals, Igor, Oleg and Zina who shocked with what happened wants to kill her husband but cannot. They all will receive just punishment for their sins which they committed for this short period of time, time of human sins.
