In this drama Svetlana Zasypina plays a sixteen year old girl who has been a star in the Russian national gymnastics program since she was barely six years old. Now that injuries have prevented her from competing again, she is relegated to the tender mercies of the ordinary school system, where she's nobody special. She has a tremendous ego problem, and despite her small size, attempts to bully and lead her classmates, and is very difficult with her teachers. Elena is one of this obstreperous girl's teachers, and she is more than willing to try and outwit her and help her learn to be a human among humans.
