Oleg is a talented medical doctor and works for the emergency service, rushing from patient to patient. Oleg knows: his arrival can change everything. Every single success makes the world better. And importantly, often he tries the impossible. The rest can wait: family, career, life... What happened with his life? While Oleg saved others, his wife has despaired and applied for a divorce; and the new manager in the hospital is concerned only with statistics and regulations. But Oleg rushes from one call to the next, races along the road — to change everything. And who knows what’s easier: to save others or to save oneself?
