Danila (Bodrov Jr.) has just gotten out of the army and needs a job so he decides to visit big brother Viktor (Sukhoroukov) in St. Petersburg. He discovers his bro is a contract killer for the Russian mob and hires on as Viktor's assistant. Danila successfully accomplishes his first assignment--the murder of a mob rival--but then has the other gangsters out for revenge. Fast-paced and gritty, with casual violence and crime the easiest options in a brokendown society. Russian with subtitles.
