The film takes place in Ukraine, in the village of Lebedinki. Marina Vlasenko awaits the return of her husband, Terence Vlasenko, who left to study at the Kiev Institute of Agriculture. But when he returns home, Marina is happy for long. The husband immediately files for her divorce, because she had no education and he is an educated man.
