Alexander and Vladimir are resuscitators at the Zaporizhia Regional Hospital. Once, having worked out a difficult shift, Vladimir suddenly decided to give up everything for himself and go to the casting of Velyki Perehony. "Either now or never!" he told his wife, but she refused to keep him company. Then Vladimir decided to call his younger colleague Oleksandr, with whom they work side by side almost every day.

Alexander agreed immediately, although the men were not close friends before the project. "I knew that Vasilich had a difficult character, and for me it was like a challenge: will we learn to negotiate if we become a team?" - Alexander explains his decision.

Vladimir has his own motivation: "I want to regain faith in men over forty." However, the gray-headed Vasilich is in excellent physical shape, leads a healthy lifestyle and looks at everything philosophically: "Strength and speed are only half the battle. To be one step ahead of others, you need to turn on logic."

Alexander's trump card is incredible physical endurance, because he is seriously engaged in strength sports. "Running and thinking at the same time is not a problem for me!" - Sasha is convinced.

Whose tactics will work? Whose character will prevail? Men are united in one thing: their work experience and ability to react quickly in extreme situations are trump cards that none of the competitors have.[1]
