Dasha is depressed, against the background of the tragedy, her relationship with the husband worsens. Soon another misfortune occurs – Pavel gets into a car accident and gets a spinal injury, because of which he risks to remain disabled until the end of his days. According to doctors, only an urgent and costly operation abroad can save Pavel.
