Contemporary Russia. The main characters of the film are victims of the recent war who are lost in a city inhabited by millions. In this megalopolis a series of murders occurs. The investigation gradually leads law student Kolya Vorontsov to the track of the sniper-killer. This is Viktor Alyoshin, a former teacher of Russian language and literature in the Chechen school. Having lost his pregnant Chechen wife during the bombing of Grozny, he adopts Islam and goes to the Chechen fighters ... Vorontsov feels that Aleshin's fate is somehow connected with the Maltsev brothers - Denis and Lev, miraculously surviving after the brutal torture and Chechen captivity. What do these people have in common? And why does the tragedy of 10 years ago completely change the life of Kolya Vorontsov who spent all these years in a city far from military operations? This war demands more and more victims.
