Andrey has always dreamt of becoming a pop star, so when a well-known record producer offers him a contract in Moscow, he jumps at the opportunity, leaving his girlfriend, Natasha behind without a second thought. Andrey’s success quickly attracts many rich and beautiful women, and Natasha is left to read about his engagement to oil princess, Yelena, in the newspaper.

Miserable and alone, Natasha’s friend Dasha suggests she tries a new dating agency called Cinderella, which specializes in introducing girls to millionaires. Madlen, the agency’s owner invites Natasha to Moscow, but when she arrives, it transpires that the agency is a fake, and Madlen and her husband Ivan disappear with Natasha’s luggage and money.

Natasha is ashamed to return home penniless and without a fiancée, so she gets a job as a waitress in a pizzeria where she meets Alex, a fellow waiter. Alex tracks down Madlen and retrieves Natasha’s money and possessions enabling her to return home. However, it is not until she has gone that he realises he has fallen in love with her.

Meanwhile, Andrey, tiring of Yelena, asks his manager to arrange for him to perform back in his home town…
