“Trust Nobody” is set in a little town of Novie Plavni. It is under risk of being flooded as a result of abnormally strong and continuous rainfalls. Besides, the repairs of the dam at the local hydroplant are being delayed, while the local mineral fertilizer factory stores dangerous chemicals that can pollute the water in case of the dam’s disruption. The locals realize the scale of the threat but do nothing to prevent it. They hope the mayor or the oblast officials will solve the problem for them. However, the circumstances are such that everyone comes to an understanding that rescuing a drowning man is the drowning man’s own business.
