A true story about habitual crimial Boriss who succeeds in escaping from prison in the tank of a vehicle transporting human waste. Criminals have made up a plan how to help Boriss to escape the prison, certainly for a solid sum of money. A truck transporting human waste regularly rides the certain route to and from the prison, so the guys will take advantage of this.

However, things won't go as planned and escaping takes longer ...
