It’s August, 1990 – and Pavel, a bus driver on a Latvian highway, kills the most famous rock star in the Soviet Union, Viktor Tsoi.
An ordinary man, Pavel always tried to do the right thing, never taken sharp turns. Never heard Tsoi’s songs, either.
Pavel will drive singer's body to Leningrad, since there's no one else to do the job. A party of mourners – Tsoi’s wife and her new boyfriend, Tsoi's mistress, his producer, his young son and an obsessed photographer - all accompany the body.
This is going to be a long trip, the perfect occasion for an agonising unravelling of love, jealousy, ambition, and greed.
