This cult crime film is widely seen as bringing Russian rock music from the underground into the mainstream. The main plot takes place in winter of 1980 and tells the story of a young nurse (Tatyana Drubich) who stays in Yalta with her patient and lover, Krymov, head of a criminal gang.  She meets Bananan, an eccentric young rock musician, who introduces her to Soviet counterculture. When Krymov discovers their connection, he plans to murder Bananan.

Dashingly post-modernist in style, there is also a counterpoint plot, taken from the book Krymov is reading, which shows the history of the murder of Tsar Paul 1 of Russia.
