Plot edit

The head of the criminal investigation department in Butovo, police major Pavel Makarov, is sent four young graduates of the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The newly minted lieutenants are very different both in appearance and in temperament: the ambitious brown-haired woman with honours Anna Turkina, the daring brunette Alexandra Popova, and the kind naïve single mother Olesya Verba, who thinks more about her three-year-old son than her work. At the same time, they all have one thing in common: with their inexperience, they greatly annoy their boss, who recently broke up with his beloved girlfriend (head of the Investigation Department, Olga Romanova). Despite Makarov's opposition, the young employees strive to prove that they are not in vain serving in the police.
