Synopsis: Oleg is a young gifted paramedic. His wife Katya works at the hospital emergency department. She loves Oleg, but is fed up with him caring more about patients than her. She tells him she wants a divorce. The new head of Oleg's EMA substation is a cold-hearted manager who's got new strict rules to implement. Oleg couldn't care less about the rules - he's got lives to save. His attitude gets him in trouble with the new boss. The crisis at work coincides with the personal life crisis. Caught between emergency calls, alcohol-fueled off-shifts, and search for a meaning in life, Oleg and Katya have to find the binding force that keeps them together.

Why are you lying?

Why? Oleg, she's lying.

Her EKG is better than mine.

Listen. You are not a doctor.

He's a doctor.

I'd donate you to science with

those weird symptoms of yours.

I have heart attacks every day.


Did the shot work this time?

Feeling any better?

I think I am...

Not sure.

Come on. Send her to a district doctor.

I'm ready to go to hospital.

I have everything packed.

You won't be admitted. Trust me.

Okay, then. Get dressed.

But first, you'll have to sign a paper.

Your consent to recently

introduced regulations.

And then we'll go.


Here you go. Write it down.

I, Valentina Nikolayevna...

...have read...

...and agree to...

...have my head shaved.

Today's date and signature.

What's that?

They have introduced new sanitary

regulations for admissions offices.

They shave patients' heads

to prevent infection.

That's nonsense!

I'm not signing this!

You have to.

They make no exceptions.

I'm not going anywhere!

How are you doing, guys?

We're wrapping up.

Leaving in a minute.

37 Radischeva St., poisoning.

Got it.

Oh my...

I'm feeling sick.

I'll probably have to

call an ambulance again.

Ma'am, will you please stop

calling an ambulance?

You are slackers!

You are not treating me!

I want them to send someone else!

Maybe they'll treat me!

My God!

Oh, my God!

You know what?

I have an incredible pill, made in Germany.

Ever heard of nanotechnology?

Yeah, I think I did.

They've invented a pill

that cures everything.

I brought it for my grandma, actually.

But if you're feeling this sick...

Terribly sick!

Here it is.

You have to suck on

it for two weeks.

In two weeks, you'll feel

like a million bucks.

But you'll have to be patient.

My goodness!

Go ahead, put it under your tongue.

Come on.

That's it.

You better lie down.

I don't get it.

Hold on. I'm in the park, right.

What's around you?

Do you see the bags store?

Hold on. No, don't go anywhere.


The park is right behind me.

Oleg, you are on the opposite side.

I'm crossing the road.

No, don't move the car.

What a distrustful moron. That

was clear right from the start.


Were you drinking?

Are you gonna drive like this?

What were you expecting?

Come on.

Well, good for you.

What about him?

Did he get better?

No way!

Come on, you are shitting me!

Katya, can you pull over?

I gotta take a piss.

Katya, let's stop by a store, okay?


I'll buy a box.

Can't you wait a bit?

You'll drink there.

Come on. I haven't been

drinking for half an hour.

Is this one okay?

Hey, Mom.

Yeah, hi.

On our way.

We're on our way.

Mom, what do you want me to do?

We'll be there in 20 minutes.

Mom, I can't talk right now. I'm driving.

See you in a bit.

...and not once...

not that I know of, at least,

did our dear Mikhail Sergeevich give up.

You see what I mean? That strength...

Hey there!

Finally they are here!

Dear Katya, finally!


I'd like to finish my toast.

Sure thing. Sorry.

Oleg, you may sit there.

Come on, let me finish the toast.

Where was I?

And one might think that this person

was just born with all these talents.

Just like that.

But that's not true.

I know how hard he had to work.

He worked really hard

to get where he is now.

And when someone says,

"It's so easy for him"...

That's nonsense. That's not

how it works in our field.

You can't do a sloppy job.

Well, you can, but you won't last long.

You will get squeezed

out of this profession.

In order to keep up with the high

standards, you have to see so much blood!

To see so much...


Kids, pardon my language!
