The main character is Mikhail Kovalyov, a talented and successful coach in the men’s volleyball Super League. He compensates for his extremely short stature with a steep disposition and aggressive behavior. He lives on a grand scale and constantly changes the women he treats as a consumer. Due to another trick, he conflicts with the new president of the Volleyball Federation – a woman. As a result, “big” volleyball is closed for him. Now, in order to get a chance for a comeback, he must lead the women’s student team to the leaders of the championship of his native provincial town. This condition is set before him by his mother – an oppressive and domineering woman, in the past a famous volleyball player and the first coach of the woman-president of the Federation. Mikhail needs to overcome himself and learn to respect girls, accept their problems and stop perceiving them only as sexual objects.
