You'll watch it with tears.

It's a story about a wife (Mariya) of a wealthy businessman (Igor). He finds a slender and younger lover (Liza) and after a half-year Mariya finds it out. While living in a large comfortable flat Mariya only has to take care of her daughter Nastya. When Igor finds out that Mariya drinks wine he takes away Nastya from her and starts to live with Liza. The story is rather boring and the only strong moments are the appearance of Serbian Petar Zekavica (Dima) as Maria's fictitious husband and Mariya's strong character played by Viktoriya Tolstoganova. She cries when her only child is stolen and we believe her maternal instinct is real. Olga Arntgolts who plays Liza had a long career in different TV-series and she still acts as if it was a soap opera. However her beautiful face can be enough to make the film interesting. After all the film had a budget of $ 1m, that's why the Igor's office looks so static and the street traffic seems to be so dull.
