A plumber takes on a corrupt, convoluted web of local politicians on behalf of hundreds of local residents in this earnest underdog drama directed by Yuri Bykov. After an attempt to fix a communal dormitory's burst pipe reveals much more significant structural damage, Dima (Artyom Bystrov) attempts to gain an audience with politicians including the mayor and the police chief, as well as his boss, who is harboring a dark secret.
