They will come only for one day and Kateryna is not only excited to spend time with her daughter, who she hasn’t seen for a long time, but also sees it as a chance to become a part of her daughter’s “high class family” and move to London. For this reason she prepares everything the best she can to impress her guests. The only worry of Kateryna is her own mother, who lives with her and has her own attitude towards the visit. Tanya and her husband are not part of her quiet world, and she does not want them to disturb it, she would prefer if they did not come at all. Her behavior puts under threat the expectations of Kateryna.
