A look into a closed world, in which justice is relative and the privileged appear to be above the law. The film addresses the question of crime and punishment in the modern world and the moral dilemma of what to do with the most degenerate criminals of our times. An experienced police officer returns to the force and is assigned a new task: he is put in charge of the convoy transporting an extremely dangerous criminal to the psychiatric ward. Members of his crew are also people with a complicated past. Having lost control of the convoy, the prison warden sets off on a mission to fix the situation, or perhaps to cover up the inconvenient truth. Then the real reason for the convoy is revealed. From then on, no one controls how justice is served.
