The series centers on Rodion Meglin (Konstantin Khabensky), a detective of the Russian police who also leads a secret life as a vigilante, hunting down criminals who have slipped through the cracks of the justice system. He used to work alone without revealing the secrets of his method. A graduate of the law faculty Esenya Steklova (Paulina Andreeva) receives a referral to the department of the Investigative Committee, in which Meglin serves, and becomes his trainee. The girl has personal motives for working with the famous investigator - Esenya's mother was killed under mysterious circumstances, and her father hides important details of what happened, but she leaves no hope of reaching the trail of the murderer. Working with Meglin becomes a serious test for Esenya.
