A modest novelist Igor Alexeevich Veselov (Alexey Nilov) lives in St. Petersburg. He occasionally remembers his previous way of life and his ex-wife who left him five years ago. Igor is totally unaware that soon he will become the main character of a criminal affair with a widely twisted plot. A killer murders Veselov’s good friend Laptev, director of a prosperous publishing house. Soon the control over the publishing house is snatched by Kuragin (Viktor Verzhbitsky). Right before his death Laptev manages to send compromising evidence on Kuragin to writer Veselov. It includes a photo from a film showing the murder and a rebus which can help to find that very tape. The key is hidden in Veselov’s first book “Pitfalls” which reflects writer’s personal experience. Now Igor knows who has killed his friend and why.

Kuragin hires a certain Alexandra (Serafima Nizovskaya) who is to worm herself in writer’s confidence and steal the tape from him. Suddenly she understands that she will hunt her own ex-husband, but Alexandra still has a soft spot for him and decides to save Igor ...
