“A group of co-workers are celebrating the promotion of one of the managers who is being transferred to the Moscow Office. Being considered for the role of Manager are the two main characters, Alena and Michael.
Michael wants to be Manager, but so does Alena, but she has a crush on Michael, which leads to a series of events, starting with her spilling her drink on him at the cafe.
Michael sees his opportunity, and along with his friend, Paul (the Bartender), they agree to play with her emotions so that she gives up her promotion for him.
Michael flirts with Alena, and convinces her that he likes her, when he really does not. It is not until the end when he invites her for a drink after work one day that she discovers the shocking truth that Michael has a fiancée, and has been playing with her emotions the whole time.
Alena is heartbroken, and runs out of the cafe. Distraught and not aware of what she is doing, she goes to walk across the street and is almost hit by a passing car when she is pulled back by Peter, who also works at the same company. They exchange looks, and in that moment her eyes are opened that Peter was the one who was always there but she never realized it.”
