Plot synopsis
The early twenties of the 20th century, Petrograd. Time of troubles: regime's paralysis, chaos, rampant crime. Boris Letush is investigating the murder of his brother, a well-known lawyer. Experienced robber Lyonka Panteleev is under suspicion. He was arrested and imprisoned in a remand prison. Only few people know that Panteleev, a former security officer, is a secret agent of the criminal investigation department. Matveev, the head of the criminal investigation, insists on the immediate liquidation of Panteleev, suggesting acting out the suicide in jail. Letush is against lawlessness: one should always prove the suspect's guilt first. The conflict is resolved unexpectedly: Panteleev escapes from the prison! Who organized the escape and why? What was his goal ?
