Aleksey is a 24-year-old taxidermist from Moscow. Being the adventurous type, he is preparing to hitchhike across Russia to marry his true love, Marina, who he met at a music festival just a year before. With only a 12kg backpack and $100 in his pocket, he sets off on the 8,500 kilometer journey to Khabarovsk. Sadly, his trip gets off to a rocky start. Rides are scarce, and at nightfall he finds himself in a small town where he is suddenly confronted by the police.
