Russian journalist Alexei Petrov is laying on his bed in a shabby hotel room in Rotterdam. Exhausted and still wearing his overcoat. The hotel landlady hands him the phone. “A telephone call from Russia. Your son is waiting!” By the roadside facing the hotel a grey Mercedes parks. The journalist suspects this is no coincidence, because he is researching Russian freighters that have been impounded in the Port of Rotterdam and writes about trafficking in women. When he helped a Russian prostitute who appealed to him, to get a forged passport, he became increasingly involved in murky affairs.
