A young girl searching for her prince charming instead falls for a stern skipper in screenwriter/director Yuri Kuzin's screen adaptation of Gennadiy Shpalikov's story (The Wharf). Life in Katya's small provincial town is slow, and though she may be hoping in the dark, the idealistic young girl can't help but anticipate the arrival of a fantasy man to sweep her up and take her to places she's never imagined. When a salty seaman arrives in town and Katya falls deeply in love, reality offers a stark contrast to her lifelong dreams of romance. Yet despite some initial doubts, Katya soon feels the true bond of love forming after spending an unforgettable night in Moscow with her newfound prince.
