Synopsis: Fast food worker Vitalik (30), who lives in a small town, has an incredible chance to get rich – for this he must become a bone marrow donor. But the problem is that Vitalik is afraid of even of the sight of blood. Vitalik is persuaded to donate by mercenary relatives – a girl, a friend and a mother, who naively believe that you can get a lot of money for Vitalik’s bone marrow, which means you can buy an apartment or open a business. Vitalik goes to St. Petersburg for a transplant and it is there that he learns that he will not receive any money. However, convinced that he is helping the little girl, Vitalik overcomes his fear and nevertheless agrees to become a donor. Two years later, Vitalik meets with the man he saved. This man turns out to be not a little girl at all. Vitalik feels doubly deceived. But if you saved someone’s life, you will never be the same. You are already a hero. And your life will inevitably get better, which is what happened with Vitalik’s life.
