When he finds out that Ann is barrenness, he asks Olga to give her baby to them. She is treated like a surrogate mother. Alex is married only for his business. Olga is waiting for the baby as she hopes to have good and strong relations with Alex. After all she tries to get her baby back. But Sasha doesn’t allow her that is why two sisters become foes.

This is the story about strangers who can be really close to you and relatives who can hate each other. This story is about selfish people and about that fact that a piece of the churchyard fits everybody.
This is a love story. It shows us what we can do for love, how much does it cost and how can we change our lives for it.
