Alexey is an ordinary young man living in Russia during the dangerous and mad 1990s. Like most of his contemporaries, he is looking for a way to survive. The easiest one is the way of crime. He joins a gang. Fortunately, his fate takes a sudden turn when by chance Alexey meets a judo trainer who brings him to his class. This in future leads Alexey to a special army squad where he is trained to fight terrorists. With the help of his friends, martial arts teachers and American colleagues, Alexey is being prepared to undertake a special mission - destroy a band of international terrorists and drug traffickers that supply drugs to all the CIS countries.
