Twenty-year-old Lera has a complicated relationship with her mother, Tatiana. Her father, grandmother and Aunt Olga all love Lera, but they spoil and indulge her. When Lera falls in love with Denis, a man from a poor background, Tatiana cannot accept the fact that her daughter intends to marry him and, in the heat of the moment, confesses to Lera that she was adopted.

Lera is devastated and leaves. However, her mother is forced to accept the marriage when Lera announces that she is pregnant. With motherhood impending, Lera feels a piece of her is missing and, as she embarks on the journey to find her real mother, she realises too late how much this will cost her.
