Plot synopsis
Kseniya Ivanova is working on a construction site. Late in life, at the age of thirty, she married Fyodor Petrov, a driver. So their shared home and hearth are the first ones for both of them... The life lying ahead of them is complicated enough, demanding generosity of heart, subtlety and the gift of understanding and sparing from each of them.
