Now Polina is forced to pay for the fact that she stubbornly turned a blind eye to the truth – her husband, and her father and brother are port smugglers who are “not squeamish” about drugs.
And her beloved was killed because he stole the goods from a person who could not be “touched” under any circumstances – from the main drug lord of the Schiller region (Eugene Sidikhin). And now, Polina must pay him a debt for her husband either stolen drugs, or a huge amount of money.
