The plane flies to Russia (Rus. Самолёт летит в Россию, Samolyot letit v Rossiyu) is a 1994 Russian comedy. The terrorists, depicting the seizure of one airplane, disembarked on takeoff with three hostages, seized and hijacked another - the old cargo An-12. During the flight, one of the engines fails and, in order to lighten the plane, the terrorists throw all the extra cargo overboard. Three passengers taken hostage, planted into a container with a parachute, and they land in the desert of mountainous terrain, in the unnamed country.

By coincidence, they are taken for members of one powerful criminal organization. Now they have to get out of the resulting problems, and find a way to return home.
