Alina’s mother gave her up and now she’s forced to live with her aunt, whom she considers vicious; she’s assured her aunt doesn’t love her. The only one who loves Alina is her doll. By luck, she finds an audition for the dance class Vinochok. This is the chance for Alina to escape from this miserable world, full of dirt, needlessness, and misunderstanding.
