After a long delay, the police finally release Aleksey in the middle of the night and, finding no other options, he is forced to sleep on the side of the road. After progressing only 335 kilometers the first day, the intrepid hitchhiker is determined to do better on the second.
From Nizhny Novgorod, Aleksey manages to catch a ride to Cheboksary, where he decides to splurge on a motel after two days with almost no sleep. Meanwhile, back in Khabarovsk, Marina has lunch with a girlfriend, who raises doubts about her prospective husband.
After a good night’s sleep, Aleksey treats himself to lunch at a cafe. Despite the respite, the trip appears to be taking its toll. While visiting Kazan, he is confronted by a couple of hostile construction workers. Moreover, Marina hasn’t answered his calls all day. Could Aleksey be making his epic trip for nothing?
Aleksey manages to have his phone fixed in Krasnoyarsk before continuing on his journey. The weather suddenly turns bad, however, and his shoes get soaked. Later, he gets a lift in a minivan that he fears could end in catastrophe.
While checking out Omsk, Aleksey drops and breaks his phone, cutting off his lifeline to Marina. An odd couple then gives him a ride, along with a serious sermon on sin, just before he encounters a ‘Lady of the Night’ outside Novosibirsk.
Aleksey enjoys a long ride through beautiful countryside with a friendly truck driver, and the pair makes some interesting stops along the way. However, shortly after being dropped off, he attracts the attention of three burly guys who look to be spoiling for trouble.
