Plot synopsis
Psychological drama. Zoya is a secure, but lonely middle-aged woman. Vika is a typical teenager longing for independence. From the roof of her apartment block Vika observes life behind the windows of the house opposite. Her photo-camera captures a love scene between Zoya and her married neighbour. Vika has the ingenious idea of blackmailing the unfaithful husband. With the help of a private detective the latter quickly exposes Vika, but, scared of the publicity, he nevertheless ends his affair with Zoya. Gradually the two women get closer, and Vika persuades her new friend to take revenge on her former lover. The women take to the idea, and their revenge reaches criminal dimensions. Zoya and Vika will never be the same as before.
