A story about establishment of a female surgeon in a complicated male-dominated profession and about her challenging way to happiness.  

Nadia the protagonist is a surgeon at a regular municipal hospital. She is no career-climber though she could become a top surgeon in the country as Nadia has not only huge experience but rare talent. At the age of 30+ she is not married; instead, she is in a complicated relationship with a married man, Oleksiy Striletsky. He is also a surgeon working in a private clinic that belongs to Igor Gordeyev (owner and CEO of gynecological clinic from Dr Baby dust 5). Striletsky keeps promising Nadia that he is about to leave his wife but actually he is in no hurry to get a divorce… Nadia is his convenient and ultra-reliable counsel in complicated surgical issues, and Striletsky uses her experience to advance his career. Deep down the protagonist understands that Striletsky is a road to nowhere, but her low self-esteem keeps her immersed in this relationship.   

Nadia has a permanent strong feeling of guilt, which reflects on her personal life. She has a secret; it is a deep personal drama, a bad decision that she is very much ashamed of… Will she manage to leave the destructive relationship and fully change her life?
