Loyalty is an odd thing which, once earned, is not readily discarded. In this late Soviet-era Russian drama, Andrei Gudionov (Oleg Borisov), was once a powerful man. During his heyday, he had impressed into his service as a driver the talented young musician Pavel Kljuev (Yuri Beljaev). As his driver, Kljuev was required to demonstrate unquestioning loyalty to him, despite any unorthodox goings-on he might observe. Gudionov has long since retired, but seeks out his former driver (now a famous conductor) to help him in settling an old score. Despite their changed circumstances and the risks involved, Kljuev feels compelled to help him out.
