In general, the musician's coffin is taken to the funeral site by Tsoi's ex-wife Marina (Mariana Spivak), his last passion Polina (Paulina Andreeva), his son Zhenya (played by the daughter of Alexey Uchitel and Yulia Peresild — Maria Peresild), his producer Yuri Reisen (Igor Vernik), the photographer Victoria who loved Tsoi unrequitedly and the current boyfriend of his ex-wife Ric (Ilya Del). They are all driven by the same miserable driver Pavel Shelest (Yevgeny Tsyganov) who allegedly hit the artist. However, at first passengers have no idea who their driver is. The storyline of the journey is accompanied by the process of investigating the death of Tsoi, by the search for a precious cassette with the artist's latest album as well as the love triangle of the driver Ikarus, the fictional photographer and an investigator in the accident case.
Relations between all the "members of the expedition" are rather strained. Besides, they all have their own reasons for being angry with the deceased, except for his son. "You can't even bury him properly," — the Icarus driver addresses them with a sharp truth. However, when analyzing the characters' communication, it should be taken into account that the screenwriters created the situation and the plot the way they wanted it to be. No one in the audience is allowed to know how much of what was shown was actually there. This is what is confusing in the film about the artist's death. Most of the audience simply doesn't understand why it was necessary to include fiction into such an event.
"A man literally turned the corner and his life changed" – Alexey Uchitel tried to reveal the personality of Tsoi through his influence on the life of a complete stranger. It was important for the director to emphasize the change in the character of Tsyganov throughout the entire journey from the moment of the accident to the musician's funeral. In the film, at the time of the accident, the driver of Ikarus, living in Riga, has no idea who Tsoi is. He has never heardany of his songs. He will not hear themat the end of this "journey".
