13-year-old Anastasia and nine-year-old Diana are sisters living in a Latvian orphanage. When the head of the orphanage tells them that the Johnson family from the USA wants to adopt them, Diana feels as if she’s won the lottery and cannot wait to go to the States. Anastasia, on the other hand, has mixed feelings. She is hoping to live with her biological mother, who makes a sudden return to their lives.
