The team is trained by Boris Rogov, ex-star of boxing. He is assisted by trainer Igor Docenko. Rogov is a tough and demanding person, the whole team is highly disciplined.

One day, businessman Sharov asks Rogov to protect him of gangsters. The team manages to beat the opposing team. Sharov offers them to become his constant "roof". All the six men have almost finished their career, they don't have any special education nor any profession. Sharov's suggestion sounds reasonable to everyone.

The friends decide to punish the stubborn businessman: after they learn that he is getting married, they come to his wedding and rape the bride. This day marks the beginning of the end of the team of champions.
