Two childhood friends who grew up in the same neighbourhood and went to the same school organize a private detective agency “Two friends”. Andrey (A.Zibrov) previously was an engineer and worked in a “closed city”. He is an excellent technician with an analytical mind, he is both theoretician and practitioner. At the same time he is comically helpless in household matters, understands nothing in business, his notions about criminal world are book-learned and derived from detective novels. Maxim (M. Drozd) previously was a detective with 15 years of service, Major of the police who had to retire because of conflicts with his bosses. Tough practitioner, he feels completely at home among city criminals. Unlike Andrey, Maxim knows the real life perfectly well. He has married Tanya (A. Shaytarova), their former classmate. Tanya is a “full-bosomed Russian beauty”, at work Maxim is a self-confident “macho” but at home he is under the thumb of his beloved wife, a strong but open-hearted personality. Inspired by detective novels Andrey registers the detective agency. Maxim refuses to take part in Andrey’s project in every possible way but Andrey persuades his old friend and Maxim agrees.
