Plot synopsis
17-year-old Nadeshda (Elena Velikanova) moves to Moscow and dreams of going to acting school. But her only friend dies in an accident and she must look after her nine-month-old baby son Vanechka. It seems the only way to save Vanechka from forced adoption is for Nadeshda to marry oligarch Pavel (Andrey Panin). (http://www.tiburonfilmfestival.com/filmInfo.php?film_id=5842)
