This is a story of a Russian woman, who, not believing that she will find understanding and support in her own country, flees to Britain. She believes that in London she will be able to move on with her destiny and career, achieve respect, because here, in her opinion, British society respect women. She accidentally meets a British born Indian guy who becomes her best friend; they have a common love for classical music and Poetry. The story develops into true and passionate love with a unique tension and allure. Apparently, there are many obstacles. So, it turns in to an impossible love story that develops unwittingly to finally overcome all obstacles. The cliché “Love Conquers All” proves to be true and the blossoming of a sublime love affair proves the cliché to be veritable. But the problems for the two lovers have only begun. The Russian woman who has fled to London is still married to a Russian Mafiosi type oligarch who will stop at nothing to punish his unfaithful wife. On the other side, the Indian original traditions put pressure on the hero to marry only his mother’s choice. The other complication is a teenage son who studies in a UK school and who is now under the custody of his mother. The story unfolds in a series of episodes with locations in both Russia and the United Kingdom encompassing dramatic conflict and perilous action.
