Plot synopsis
Action film based on the novel of the same title by Alexander Bushkov.
Under the guise of a romantic couple on vacation, secret service officer Kirill Mazur and his colleague Olga go to the Russian Taiga. Their mission is to destroy a biological ammunition storage. They get trapped in a world where human rules are scorned and the deadly weapon is seized by gangsters. The gangís leader, ëProkhorí, is a powerful and influential villain, who makes up his own rules. His hobby is huntingÖfor people. Mazur had never dreamt he would change his high-tech gun for a self-made ivory knife. Neither did he expect having to rescue his beloved companion and himself before saving the world. Mazur eventually learns that survival is a game without rules.
