The man is challenged by street thugs, some of whom he fights, evading others with impressive parkour moves. While the library-goer struggles through the streets of Chelyabinsk, the clock in library is ticking and a smoking-hot librarian is waiting for the book to be returned.

The reader receives assistance from his friends, who pick him up and drive away from the thugs in a street-racing car. Some scenes of the movie are shot from a first-person perspective, immersing the viewers in the book-returning fever.

While many viewers appreciated the efforts of the video crew, some still remained confused and said the 'movie' did not explain why exactly the books need to be returned on time.
