A divorced Professor of gynaecology, Aleskadnr Beletsky leads a quiet life. However, his solitude comes to an abrupt end when a neighbour knocks on his door one day asking for help to her friend. A young girl that comes to his office the next day is pregnant. Anna feels that an abortion is her only option, but if she goes ahead with the operation, it is unlikely she will be able to have children.
When Anna comes to Professor’s house some days later, he has no choice but to invite her in. The unexpected arrival of his 20-year-old son, however, brings about a furious argument during which it becomes clear who has fathered Anna’s child.
Furious that his son has no interest in the baby, the Professor convinces Anna to stay. She agrees, however, Anna’s mother’s disapproval combined with his ex-wife’s interference force the Professor to resign and they move to another town.
Anna has a difficult delivery but gives birth to a baby boy. After so much stress, the Professor has a heart attack. After all the Professor and Anna begin a new life together.
