Social documentary drama. Three heroines: three girls from the provinces. Each of them wants to conquer Moscow, and each of them has her own plan. One aspires to get onto a popular television show and construe a love with the hero of her maiden dreams, in passing giving him ñ as well as all the viewers ñ her purity. Another believes to be the new Madonna, the new Louisa Veronika Ciccone, pop icon of sex. And the third is ready to sell her virginity for money in order to study at some institute, as long as it is in Moscow. This is a contemporary ìMoscow does not Believe in Tearsî. ìThis film came about by itself. I was making a completely different film when I suddenly understood that I should, could and wanted to speak about this. It is very important: for me personally, for my family, and for my surroundingsî (Vitali Mansky).
