The story depicts the life of a young woman Rita (Anna Samokhina) who becomes a mistress of Artur (Valentin Gaft), the boss of the powerful criminal group in the seaside town in Abkhazia (in that time it was a part of USSR). The movie is roughly based on the short story Carmen of Chegem by Abkhazian novelist Fazil Iskander.
