Katerina seems to have it all. Young and successful, she is popular with her friends, however, one thing is missing - a special someone with whom to share her life. Her friends suggest that she tries internet-dating and Katerina, although not totally convinced, realises she has nothing to lose and half-heartedly agrees. She chooses four possible candidates and arranges to meet them the following week. Apprehension, however, quickly turns to disappointment as the dates go from bad to worse. The first man is greedy, the second is mentally unstable, the third has a daughter from a previous marriage, and the fourth turns her down after she sends him her photograph!

Disheartened, Katerina takes comfort from her neighbour, Boris, whom she had coincidentally met while waiting for one of her disastrous dates. After a walk in the city together, Katerina realizes that she has a lot in common with Boris, and furthermore the attraction is mutual. Her search is finally over. If only she had known that the right man was there all along!
