    • The professional model agency is holding the out-door photo-shoot in Novorossiysk. A naive plump waitress, MARINA, trying to bring a cup of coffee to the set and attract the attention of a famous photographer, makes a mess and turns the set into chaos. Just recently she has received the letter from Italy informing her that she has won a model competition and now the prestigious model agency of Rome “The Models” is waiting for her to arrive and sign a contract.
      The same letter is sent to ARINA, a girl of bright appearance from Moscow. She has already bought the tickets to Rome for herself and her fiancée VLADIMIR. Vladimir for several years has been searching for the hidden treasure that as believed, in fifties was sent from Russia to Rome. Arina is far from his enthusiasm, anyway she takes it as a happy chance to travel to Rome together. But soon she finds him in a bed with another woman, and leaves for Rome alone.

      All three girls dream to change their lives: Marina longs for adventures and richness, Arina tries to overcome the disillusionments of love, Luba craves the passions of true love. But naïve girls do not expect that the mistress of the Italian model agency HELENA, the ex-model, who is trying to preserve the rest of her beauty, has received an ultimatum from Mr. LAURI, a cynical bank representative. Helene has to return the credit of 200 000 Euros to the bank within a month, otherwise she would loose her properties.
      The flight to Rome is full of funny situations, at last, the three girls are in Rome. MIRO, Helene’s cousine, is meeting them in the airport. The office of “The Models” occupies a beautiful ancient building, but the girls are provided with a basement room. The life of “a future famous model” demands sacrifices in the present. Will Helene manage to make super models of these girls? How to make a great portfolio having no money to pay a photographer?
      Living in Rome turns out a fantastic adventure: girls gain independence, find treasures, meet their sweethearts, save the Helena’s agency from the bankruptcy. Helena even offers them to share partnership in her model business. Thanks to our Russian girls Helena returned her prestige and fame, experiencing a new wave of success.
