But all people around him – from .thieves to his police officers colleagues who get sticky fingers – live better than he. The law is not written for them. Once Danilov decides to abuse the law. The first attempt almost ends in failure. But the more experienced colleague Sergei patronizes Ivan and the district police officer Danilov’s life is cardinally changed.
