Wala is a young divorced mother of a young boy, working at a vodka factory in Zygulyovsk, Russia. She lives with her mother and a 17-year-old brother in one apartment. She also dreams of getting out of the provinces to Moscow, where she would be able to start a successful actress career. She attends acting, dance and singing classes, but nobody around understands her aspirations. Her mother - a bus conductor, complains when Wala asks her to take care of the boy as she herself just met a former love of her life after 30 years, and hopes to set her life on a new path.
Wala's colleagues think she is odd and expects too much of life. They don't believe her talents and warn her against Moscow, where she might end up on a street. Wala however makes her own decision not listening to anyone else. She leaves her son so that she would make a career. Her mother refrains then from plans of the new relationship in order to take care of a grandchild... This is an universal, although rooted in very concrete reality, picture of a dissolved social and family ties in a shadow of ever-present vodka from a local factory.
