This film is about a working girl from Vyshny Volochek climbing the political Olympus. Ekaterina Furceva wrote three different stories and failed with all of them:

2. COMPANION-IN-ARMS: she swapped to the career in the communist party; acquaintance with Pyotr Boguslavsky; breach; acquaintance with Stalin and appointment as the Secretary of the Moscow City Committee; during Khrushchev times, appointment as the First Secretary of Moscow City Committee; in 1957, saved Khrushchev from dismissal at the meeting of Political Bureau; she is appointed a member of Presidium of the Central Committee of the Communist Party; she fell in disfavour with Khrushcev and was dismissed from the Presidium of the Central Committee; a suicide attempt and appointment as the Minister of Culture.

3. EMPRESS: persecution of Ernst Neizvestny, Yuri Lyubimov, Alexander Tvardovsky; support to Oleg Efremov; acquisition of foreign films including “A Man And A Woman” of Claude Lelouch; marriage to a diplomat Nikolai Firyubin – happy family life never worked out; she fell in disfavour with Brezhnev; loss of the country house, disappointment with work – accusation of potations – loneliness – death on 24 October 1974.
