Plot synopsis
The taxi driver Ivan Shlykov becomes an unwilling witness and participant of the musician Lyosha Seliverstov's drinking spree. He drives his bohemian chums around Moscow, sells them his vodka, only to see his client disappear without paying. The taxi driver is mad to be so insulted by a pathetic loafer, a puny nothing of a music player. Shlykov finds Seliverstov, thus setting off the tragic story of their relationship involving a blind hate, an unshared love, an overpowering weakness, a lack of a common language and a crazy hope to find one.
