VASILY CHERTKOV is a man in the prime of his LIFE, A HOPELESS romantic, a former musician. Until now, looking for a creative personality GAZING INTO HIS CRYSTAL BALL! "Forever young, ALWAYS drunk." Lonely, STRANGE to anyone. Sometimes very lazy and quick-tempered. For a stack of vodka, ready for any "feats". But despite all HIS WEAKNESSES, a rather positive and "living" person WEARING HIS HEART ON HIS SLEEVE.

  VICTOR VALAFAR Is a young, presentable advocate from a very prestigious law firm. HE has an attractive appearance and the ability to WIN THE TRUST OF others. Such people are said to be "Devilish".
  He is a determined and pushy, in every sense of the word, person.
HE will never miss the opportunity to benefit from the situation for HIS company and for
  But what secret is kept behind all this beautiful shell and expensive suit?

ZINAIDA BARANOVA Vasily's neighbor in the apartment. Forever "with a claim" against the people who she doesn’t like and who probably she likes as well. Since the first meeting she has been down on Vasily, although she is forced to constantly ask him to do "man’s job" around the house for a small fee. Which she often regrets.
In every possible way, she has tried to "change" her careless neighbor, thereby provoking him to rash actions, in the hope that sooner or later he will be “put" behind bars.

She loves only her cat.
