Ambitious and adventurous fifth-year student of the Altai University of Tourism and Recreation Ksenia Zavgorodnyaya wants to work in the hotel business and open her own hotel. But the obsessive attention of the rector threatens not only Ksusha's plans, but also her further education at the university. The girl finds the brave, at the same time very scandalous way out of the situation, after which she has to flee from her native Barnaul. In Moscow, Ksyusha expects to get a job at the hotel "Grand Lion", where her father works.
However, in the capital's hotel the girl encounters confusion: in connection with the arrival of a new eccentric owner everything changes from management to the name. Taking advantage of the turmoil, enterprising Xenia appears to be a certified specialist and tries to get into a hotel for a high position. Cheating is exposed quickly and the girl has only one chance to get a job - to become a washerwoman, starting a career from the very bottom step of the hotel social ladder. Can Ksenia curb the adventurous character, stay away from the new owner and become his own in a well-coordinated team of the hotel?
