Captain Andrey Kubankov, nicknamed Kuba, is a homicide investigator of the district department of internal affairs in a small town of Srednerechensk. He is honest and incorrupt and has no cold cases. Not so long ago, he was the second commander of a surveillance troop of a motorized rifle regiment. He was dismissed for a fight with his commander, a careerist and a timeserver, for whom Kubankovís wife left him. Having returned to his native Srednerechensk, Kuba was unemployed and drank vodka, spending his severance pay until he met a young nice girl Erika. When unknown people kidnapped Erika, almost in Kubaís eyes, and started to demand ransom from her brother, a large businessman Oleg Odintsov, Kuba, using his skills of a military intelligence operative, found the kidnappers and sent them to the police. In the past, Odintsov and Kuba were classmates but they were not friends due to different sets of mind. Kuba has always been a hopeless dreamer and a justice seeker and Odintsov is a born huckster. After the kidnapping, Odintsov invites Kuba to work in his security service, offering good money, but Kuba refuses, as freedom in decisions making is more important to him than a golden dog lead. Meanwhile, Kuba is invited to work in the police. Knowing that his experience will help in prevention of crimes like the kidnap of Erika, Kuba agrees to work in the local district department of internal affairs. In the beginning, he learns to keep down emotions while catching robbers and murderers. Then he gets used to and investigates the most complicated and notable cases. Kuba lives happily with Erika, taking no benefits of Odintsov, although they get on and almost become friends. Erika loves her brother a lot and Kuba does not want to disappoint her. He was like a father to her and she would never play his brother false. Kuba investigates one case by another. The crime committers are put into prison each time but the ordering persons always seem to be self-destructed. In a while, Kuba makes a conclusion that all cases he investigated were ordered by the same person, who is very smart and dangerous. Someone tries to liquidate Kuba several times. From case to case, Kuba gets closer and closer to him and understands soon that the person who ordered all these notable crimes is Odintsov. His wealth is not based on the successful business but criminality. Nevertheless, Kuba has not got enough evidence yet. Besides, there is a dilemma in front of him: to neutralize Odintsov and lose Erika or to come to terms to his conscience. Finally, Kuba is going to arrest Odintsov, having gathered all necessary evidences. Nevertheless, Odintsov turns to be more crafty and tough, than Kuba could think. Seeing that roads out of the town are blocked, Odintsov take a random person hostage, threatening to kill him, and demands to let him out of the town and the country. Odintsov called Erika to bring him documents and money. Kuba puts a tail on Erika and finds Odintsov. He kills Odintsov in the skirmish. Erika is shocked. She accuses Kuba of betrayal and does not want to be with her brotherís murderer anymore. Kuba has to leave the town forever.
