Anatoli is down on his luck and, as a translator, is having a difficult time finding work under the new capitalist system in Kiev. Home life is no better as his wife walks out to go live with another man. A friend suggests Anatoli hire a hitman to kill his wife, yet, when it comes to sending a picture of the intended victim, Anatoli sends his own in an attempt at suicide. However, after meeting a hooker with a heart of gold, Anatoli decides to live. Unfortunately, it is too late to call off the hit. So Anatoli is forced to hire another killer to bump off the original hitman.
