Lena and Vasia are happily married with two children, until a domestic conflict spirals out of control, with a chain of events leading to an angry conclusion. In the heat of the moment, Lena and Vasia tell each other that they can live without one another, and they get their wish. From now on, Lena lives in a world without Vasia, and Vasia lives in a world where Lena is absent. Everything else remains unchanged - they have their children, neighbours and relatives.

Inspired by their new found freedom, both husband and wife get on with living their separate lives. While Vasia is taking care of the children, Lena is looking for a job. But when both become romantically involved with new partners, they begin to realize that they cannot live apart after all, and they now must find a way of reuniting - if that is possible.
