In the high-ranking offices of the Ministry of Internal Affairs it is decided to organize a special police subdivision — the “resort police” or “RP” – (within the Morals Department). The new subdivision is to “improve the moral and ethical climate” in the resort area where an important event will be held, simply said, to “startle, calm and squeeze out as far as possible all this motley army of prostitutes, pimps, gigolos, card sharks and other pilferers of all stripes that gather together like flies on jam at the seaside resort with the first stream of May sun”. Such RP subdivision is formed out of the policemen called up from different regions of Russia. The reasons for calling up of policemen from other cities are obvious: the local policemen went to the same school as the local criminals, they know each other well and it’s very difficult to work sufficiently in such circumstance. And here our heroes are. Seryoga Ryabtsev, a “loner” of 40-45. He is an experienced investigator working “in the field” all his life, loving husband and father. Once Seryoga comes home without calling and finds his wife in bed with a famous local “businessman”. Being in surge of passion Seryoga almost shot both. Seryoga’s boss appreciates his “agent” a lot and decides that the “resort” is an excellent outgo while the dust settles. So, Sergey Ryabtsev being angry with all women in the world goes to the seaside to avoid doing silly things. Kirill Stepanovich Loginov will be retired in a year. He is an experienced cop of the Soviet school. He saw all changes of the law enforcement system. He has a mind of an experienced investigator — such a Lieutenant Colombo. But he is not interested in work anymore. “Kiddo” or “Student” — Zhenka Vislov of 23. This one is crazy about his profession like a maniac. He is ready to read detective stories day and night imagining he is the main detective character or binge-watch series about all cops of the world and then quote in season and out of season from everything he’s read or seen. When Zhenka learned about the project he voluntarily wrote an application. So, there are three generations of cops — “granddad”, Seryoga and “kiddo”. Each of them goes to the town of N on his own. They meet each other in a house at the seaside. They are instructed to arrive at the place, put themselves under orders of the supervisor Lieutenant Colonel Samoylenko and wait for further instructions. Within next few days Lieutenant Colonel Samoylenko has never come. Snatching at a chance the men hang out totally. The nice lady of the house – “a woman on the shady side of forty” – is the main object of their regard. Indeed, what else three men need – there are Zhenka’s flirt, Seryoga’s snobbery and academic interest of Kirill Sergeevich. And when the vocation seems to become “languishing” at all, the hostess shows her cards. She is the head of the “Morals Department” Lieutenant Colonel Irina Petrovna Samoylenko.
