Thief in law Boris Bogomolov nicknamed Bogomol feels that to the end of his life his criminal experience is a burden. During many years of his prison terms he read and studied a lot of books because his lifelong dream was to be a common school teacher. At the last meeting in the capital criminal bosses discuss the criminal Kiks’s coronation with the title of the “thief in law”. Bogomol is dead set against it. He admits that Kiks pays hatfuls of money to the “common fund” but he gets this money from drug trade, moreover he is not a thief but a murderer and a bandit. The bosses agree with Bogomol and refuse to crown Kiks. In addition Bogomol asks to discrown him but the meeting opposes such a suggestion. At a regular examination Bogomol’s personal doctor tells him that with his brain cancer he can last no more than half a year. After that Bogomol decides to leave the capital. Friends make him a new passport in the name of Boris Bogolyubov and a fake diploma in philology. So Bogomol leaves for a small town of Solnechny. Before the departure he meets a Gypsy who tells him: “Do good to people... Your disease can’t be healed but you will wash off sins from your soul”. On his way to Solnechny Boris meets Lidia, a young teacher at a local school, and soon becomes a teacher of literature there. Lidia acquaints him with another young and beautiful teacher Tatyana. At school Bogomol can’t get along with all pupils. In his class there are members of a gangster group who distribute drugs among teenagers. They sell drugs and offer them to their peers expanding the distribution network. This criminal chain is headed by notorious Kiks whose coronation was rejected by Bogomol. Kiks’s men are even in the local police and help him to carry on the illegal trade with impunity. Bogomol’s arrival breaks the usual way of life of juvenile delinquents and their patrons. Bogomol is engaged in open war with the criminals and so endangers not only himself but also Lida who has taken his side. But after all it turns out that Tanya is not just a teacher but also a special agent...
