ROMANCE IN THE CITY is a classic story of love, friendship and betrayal. Life in the big city with its unrelenting pressures has had a damaging effect on the relationships of the four main characters. Mitia, Gera, Tania and Lisa have been friends since childhood, having grown up together in neighbouring houses. But life has separated them for long ten years.
Now Gera intends to marry for money and will soon become the owner of a successful company, whereas Mitia, recently released from a long prison sentence, harbours bitter memories of Gera’s betrayal. Tania is a successful designer, and Lisa is a housewife. Mitia and Tanya have long resisted a mutual attraction but finally realise they cannot live without one another. Each character has to face the difficulties created by their different social positions, unravel intrigues, discover clues to old secrets and finally win the battle over hatred, envy and the evil designs of their enemies.
