Tanya Zaitseva from Leningrad, a nurse by day and a prostitute catering to foreigners by night, suddenly receives a marriage proposal from a Swedish client . After another altercation with the police she goes home to share good news with her mother, who thinks that her daughter is just a nurse. Tanya does not hide the fact that she is getting married not for love, but because she wants to have an apartment, a car, money and dreams "to see the world with my own eyes." In a conversation with her mother she argues that prostitution is characteristic of all trades, "all sell themselves." However, the mother can not even imagine that Tatiana sells herself in the truest sense of the word.
