Plot synopsis
Charming young Olga marries a successful businessman. It is surrounded by luxury and well-being. Olga is a light woman who gets carried away, makes herbaria, sews dolls, recites poems to servants and loves her oligarch husband very much.
One day, her influential husband dies in a confrontation with bandits. Olga's cozy and carefree world collapses in the blink of an eye. The heroine, leaving a luxurious mansion full of servants, travels to a world she does not know at all. During her wanderings, this kind and naive woman, in love with beauty, nature and art, meets for the first time indifference and cruelty, hypocrisy and betrayal. It becomes a toy in the hands of those who want to use it for fun.
When she finally meets a decent and honest person, it turns out that is not enough for love ...
