Original Title: Against All Odds

Rita is in her final year of the law school and plans to become an investigator.

Her life changes overnight when she learns about the tragic death of her mother. A woman was found dead in a country house in bed with her lover. The investigation, which was headed by Rita’s boyfriend, Artyom, establishes that the couple had been secretly meeting in that house for a long time, and the tragedy occurred as a result of an accident, from an burning cigarette. The case is quickly closed.

But something doesn’t add up, Rita feels that there are still many questions. Her father has withdrawn into himself and does not even want to discuss the death of his wife. Relations between Rita and her father become even more strained when the girl begins her own investigation.

In parallel, as the first case as an investigator, Rita begins investigating the disappearance of a wealthy businessman’s son, at first not suspecting that these two cases are closely related.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
