"Detective Anna " is a story about a young provincial woman, Anna Mironova (Aleksandra Nikiforova), endowed with intuition and an extraordinary mind. She lives in Zatonsk, a small provincial town of the XIX century, and is very different from the girls of her time. Though born in the province, Anna is very well educated. She is considered strange because she does not take interest in usual girlish amusements: she prefers bicycle racing rather than cross-stitching, wears Turkish-style trousers and takes great interest in spiritualism... Her strangeness causes people to condemn her. However, Anna does not mind the slanting looks. Her soul yearns for adventure! So, one day she meets Yakov Stolman (Dmitry Frid), a Moscow detective who has arrived in Zatonsk on a secret business. He is a confirmed bachelor and materialist. Anna offers him her help in finding criminals, but he does not trust her at first. However, over time, he takes the unusual girl’s words into account oftener and oftener and finally starts involving her in investigating the most complicated and intricate cases.
