Thousands of young women come to Moscow from Russia’s provincial towns determined to achieve success. But hardly any of them face the difficulties that Lisa Golitsyna does. Lisa is having a hard time trying to make it in the capital: she struggles to combine her study with work to make a living. To top it all off her mother is sick and her sister has been arrested for murder and taken into custody... Now Lisa must find the real killer so that the prosecutor would drop the charges against her sister.
Many newcomers hustle their way through the big city trying to bring their ambitions to fruition, but in the end, they are left with nothing. But Lisa is a different story. Just like Cinderella, she’ll get her happy ending: Lisa will find her "Prince Charming", a rich heir named Mark, and the justice will triumph. There's still a long way to go for that to happen. The secret of Lisa's success is that she is a kind and genuine person. A girl like her will never be alone. There will always be people around her, who are more than willing to stretch out a helping hand.
