Polina is 21, she graduated from the Pedagogical college and failed finding job in this field. In half-a-year after graduating, she stopped looking for any job, as her main goal since first course at university was to get successfully married. After breaking up with her previous boyfriend, Polina met Ilya on the Internet. Ilya was a good part: a native of Moscow, sportsman, handsome and well fixed. In two weeks, he suggested to live together and promised to come after Polina. Ever since then Polina is waiting for her Prince to arrive.
