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.
After a harrowing ride along winding mountain roads overlooking Lake Baikal, Aleksey finally manages to ditch his drunken hosts. He then finds a safer ride to a village where he spends a warm evening among old friends singing hitchhiking songs.
Now in the final stretch, Aleksey gets a lift in a truck, only to discover he’s joined the circus. On finally reaching Khabarovsk, he calls his bride-to-be. Marina asks him to meet her at a restaurant, where there is a very big surprise in store for the prospective groom.
