Mikhail, his wife Lena and daughter Dasha have come to the capital from Yaroslavl. Mikhail quickly finds work as a tutor to a boy called Matvey while moonlighting at a café as a security guard at night. One evening the family is invited to a party by Matvey’s parents where Mikhail meets Masha Gorenko, a promising young opera singer. Mikhail is immediately captivated by the girl’s singing and becomes even more infatuated after talking with her. He feels his attachment is more than just a passing fancy and soon finds himself torn between the daily routine of married life in a one-room rented apartment and the exciting and glamorous world of Masha Gorenko. Mikhail’s existence soon becomes an unbearable double life full of pain, passion, jealousy, empty promises and ultimately, destruction of hope.
