In 1982, 500 miles south of Moscow in Rostov-on-Don, a body is found, unearthed after heavy rains hit the countryside. Its discovery sparks a search through the woods, where seven more bodies are found in various stages of decomposition. All of them are brought to the morgue for examination by forensics expert Viktor Burakov. Among the dead are several children and young women, their bodies horribly mutilated and disfigured. After the autopsy Burakov concludes that a serial killer is responsible. But to the authorities serial killers do not exist in the Soviet Union. They are "a decadent Western phenomenon..."
