One hopes for love after decades of loneliness, the other fights for a dream which threatens the relation with her child. The mother, Tatiana, and the daughter, Valentina, live in a boring, provincial town of Zhiguljovsk 1000 kilometers south-east of Moscow. Valentina, 22 years old, works in a vodka factory, Tatiana, 50, is a buss conductor. To make her dream real Valentina has to move to Moscow, leaving her 5 years old son Danilo at Tatiana’s home.
To win her dream Tatiana would rather like to stay alone and give a chance to her problematic love. Both dreams are hardly popular among friends and relatives. Both dreams worsen their own relationship. In our film we accompany Tatiana and Valentina during the first part of their trip to happiness. It’s a bumpy road. Valentina, who’s dream is to be a TV star in Moscow has to over win her own limitations as well as comrades irony and malice at the vodka factory. Tatiana has to adapt her expectations to the reality when her potential life partner shows up as a part time drunker and a looser. In the middle of this both women have to take Danilo’s, Valentina’s son, future into consideration. One of them has to give up.
