Alyona, the capricious daughter of the successful businessman Khromov, wants to go abroad to a fashionable school of choreography against her father’s will. To put an end to his daughter’s attempts to run off, Khromov, a man of stern temper, decides to marry her. “To the first best”, he tells Alyona. This first best is the musician Vanya from a vocal-instrumental ensemble. Khromov agrees with Alyona: if within a week the groom runs off, the marriage will not take place and Alyona can go to Berlin to her choreography school. If Alyona runs away from her groom, Berlin is nogo. The bet is sealed. The protagonists go on a journey full of unexpected adventures.
