    • Synopsis
    • Herman, Lykov, Shorokh, and Grekh are the best of friends. Having each done their service in the army, they now serve as operatives in OMON, the Russian special police force. By night, they troll the crime-ridden streets, looking for whatever excitement is to be had. When a simple misunderstanding with the local mafia escalates into a bigger conflict, the friends prepare for war. To exacerbate matters, Herman has fallen in love with the mob boss's girl, Aglaya. He dreams of running away with her and starting a better life — but fears what would no doubt mean drastic consequences for his companions.
      The last feature film from acclaimed Russian director Alexey Uchitel, “The Edge” (Kray), was nominated for Best Motion Picture, Foreign Film at the 2010 Golden Globes and was selected as the Russian entry for Best Foreign Film at the 2010 Academy Awards
