An uncatchable gang terrorizes the city. The criminals use a new scheme of racketeering: wearing masks and driving a black van, they kidnap famous businessmen one by one and then make an “irresistible offer” to them. The kidnapped get metal neck collars filled with plastic explosive and equipped with web cameras and communication devices. The collar bombs cannot be taken off or tricked because the kidnappers monitor everything what is going on with the kidnapped after the neck collar is on and activated. If a businessman does not pay ransom to the criminals, large sums amounting to some million roubles from each one, the blast will tear his body to pieces. After the first explosion, the police command assigns this case to Denis Brunov, one of the best officers of the Internal Affairs Directorate and the homicide department head. Denis and his family (his wife and his little son) are about to move to Samara, where his wife got a good job and Denis found an interesting vacancy in the local Internal Affairs Directorate. Brunov has only five days at his disposal. Meanwhile, the cruel gang does a terrible thing and Brunov forgets about everything. The criminals kill two friends and colleagues of Brunov. Then, in order to release one of the gang members, they kidnap Brunov, torture him and even put an explosive collar on the policeman too. They demand to release the detrained instead of paying ransom. By some miracle, the police Major escapes. After that, the only Brunov’s aim is to find, punish and liquidate the gang members and their boss, an experienced and daring criminal, who was planning a series of blasts the whole year round and provided for all contingencies for this period. It will be the main duel in Denis Brunov’s life. Inspired by a true story.
