Plot synopsis
Before leaving his native country with his family, restaurateur Nikolay goes to the provinces with his friend Yuri to buy cheap old icons from gullible villagers. By chance, friends discovered the unique icon of the fourteenth century - the Savior with the bright eye, which, according to legend, cannot be acquired dishonestly, because whoever commits this sin will certainly be punished. Kolia and Youra disregarded the legend and nevertheless decided to try to somehow deceive the owner of the icon. As Nikolai sneaked behind the icon, a forester (the owner of the icon) attacked him, Nikolai accidentally killed him while defending himself. And then events will develop on their own, and Kolya will return to Moscow alone, because they will also kill his friend. But fate and loss will haunt the hero more.
