A beautiful young woman, Tania (Mironova), returns to her small town after living the
posh life of a "model" in Moscow, and proposes to her childhood sweetheart, Mishka (Basharov),
who works in the local mines.
A missing wedding gift causes complications which is aggravated
further by the jealous interference of Tania's ex-boyfriend, who happens to be a sadistic
Mafia boss. To further complicate matters, Mishka's family distrusts Tania, whom they suspect
did more than simply model in the big city to earn her money.
