A railroad worker finds millions of levs on the train tracks. He decides to turn the entire amount over to the police, and the state rewards him with a new wristwatch, which proves to be a fake and stops working shortly after. Meanwhile, the head of the PR Department of the Ministry of Transport loses Petrov’s old Slava (Glory) watch, a family relic. Here starts his desperate struggle to get his old watch back, as well as his dignity.
