Nadia Klyueva works as an engineer of the design bureau of the research institute. She is very active in public life, but has no personal one, although she is already over thirty. Her only entertainment is playing ping-pong paired with her old friend Gennady, who works as a technician in the same research institute and is in love with her.
Everything changes when Nadia accidentally meets her school friend Susanna who works as a sociologist. Susanna, after finding out that Nadia is still not married, decides to “improve her life” by teaching her “scientific” methods of seduction, taking her to an underground seller of fashionable western clothes, giving her instructions and explanations of how to behave and what to do. Nadia follows these instructions diligently, getting into awkward and somewhat funny situations with the result that is quite different from what was expected.
