Plot synopsis
Tanya works as a taxi driver 101 km away from Moscow. Here everybody knows each other – if not personally, then through the friends. Belated passengers feel that they met Tanya more that once ,so, she hears a lot of intimate conversations and drunken confessions in her taxi. Even though Tanya is number five for her taxi company dispatchers, she is always number one by nature. She rackishly swears at the workers, who have washed her car badly, she raises the children by herself and sells vodka – in large quantities, at night, after working on taxi.
