Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this romance, which was enormously popular in the former Soviet Union, Klava (Galina Polskich) is a woman with a history of disappointment in love. She is divorced from her first husband, by whom she had her now teenaged son. Her second lover, who was married to a dying woman, gave her custody of his daughter but has now left her. She makes the acquaintance of a sailor who has come to her southern seaport town to bury his mother. Because he knows no one in town, she is able to help him a great deal. As they work together, handling these intimate details, they come to care for each other, but each is careful not to become too close, too soon. Klava is too busy dealing with her son's turbulent emotions as he embarks on his first love affair and taking care of her adopted daughter to have time for romance.
