Two burglars, Sergej and Polde, steal a valuable painting called Landscape No.2. Quite by accident, Sergej also steals a mysterious document from the end of the Second World War. Instructor takes over the case of the missing painting and document, and a diabolical mechanism from the past is unleashed.
