Oleg is a talented medical doctor and works for the emergency services, 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 to 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?
