Zhenia is Roman’s wife and they have a son, Ilya. Sasha is Sergey’s wife but they don’t have children. Roman is a good painter by his vocation but he is a bad businessman by default. His wife wants to succeed in a little family printing business. Sergey is a good entrepreneur but not a caring husband, so Sasha feels a lonely housewife. The families turn out to be neighbours. They have got acquainted and Sergey offers Zhenia to start a common business of printing materials with sexual content. Zhenia agrees immediately but it takes much time to persuade Roman. In a while, the men “swap” their wives: Zhenia started to date with Sergey and Sasha with Roman. This appears to be a better combination for everybody, both spiritually and physically. When Roman’s son Ilya learns about their family’s breakdown, he doesn’t blame his father because he likes Sasha! Besides, she is a graduate of the Stroganov Academy of Industrial and Applied Arts and introduces “her painter” to an art dealer. But the things are not so cloudless as they may seem...
