Sofia is a student and has a part-time job as a "princess" at the city's amusement park to earn money for an archaeological expedition to Turkey. In the meantime, the oligarch Yuri Korolenko concocts a scam, and its central figure will become Sofia, the last of the Izyaslavsky family.
Yaroslav brings Sofia to see his grandfather but accidentally discovers that she is the heiress of Yuri Korolenko and his entire business empire. Frightened that he would lose everything, Yaroslav plans to send Sofia to Turkey until he understands this new reality.
Yuri convinces Sofia that his property and business belong to her. It turns out that Sofia is not only incredibly rich, but she is also the only heiress of the ancient royal family from the Rurik people – the Izyaslavskies, and Yuri has been looking for her throughout all these years.
Sofia receives a message which reads: “Don’t trust Yuri. Run before it’s too late”. Now it is time to discover the truth behind her new reality.
Sofia is in hospital after the car crash. Despite her condition, Yuri still forces her to give a press conference with life-changing revelations.
Still upset after the press conference, Sophia resists believing that her father was a criminal. She decides to find out as much as possible about his life.
Sofia escapes from Koroloneko’s mansion and hides and her mother’s hotel. She does not wish to see anyone, even Yaroslav. There, she issues a press conference to clear her family's name.
When Sophia and Yaroslav leave the conference, a killer shoots at Sofia, but Yaroslav manages to cover her. When he learns he almost killed his own grandson, Yuri Korolenko turns himself in to the police.
