Save our souls, Mama!

Alyona  had enough money but felt unfulfilled, so she left St. Petersburg and started working for a village which puts women together with children in need of a family. Many of the kids in in the village have had to flee abusive or neglectful parents who were alcoholics or drug addicts. How does the village's director, former naval lieutenant Sergey Yakovenko, run everything and obtain funding? Do they see him as a director, or as a dad? Do they think of Alyona as their mother? Can raising five children that aren't your own be as fulfilling as taking care of your own family?
