With a lively star performance by Nadezhda Rumiantseva as an attractive and independent-minded cook in a logging company, this Russian comedy about love and its foibles is on stronger footing. Locked in by miles of forest and snow, the lumberjacks naturally focus on the pretty cook as a point of interest. Among them is the local lothario who makes a bet with the others that she will give in to his irresistible charms. Once the bet is on, the cook shows she has her own ideas of how a romance should be conducted. Aside from this main story are sub-plots about two unhappy women who manage to resolve the issues that are keeping them down.
