Fabien and Nicolas take the plunge by signing up to the Au Cœur de l’Est dating agency. They heard about traditional and family values and the beauty of eastern women. They want to find love in Ukraine, because they could not find it in France. They meet the manager Kateryna Baratova (Fabien by Skype, and Nicolas at the agency’s office located in Marseille), explain their cases and their criteria, and work together to select the women they would like to meet. The manager advises them on some profiles of young single people in Kharkov and contacts these women to find out if they are interested in meeting our Fabien and Nicolas.
After having corresponded with several young women from the Au Coeur de l’Est agency for a few weeks, Fabien and Nicolas go to Ukraine to finally meet their correspondents. They discover snowy Kharkov and its old-fashioned charm. Nicolas totally loses his means in front of the one he wanted the most, the beautiful Marina, and their meeting does not turn out to be fruitful: both are shy, the conversation does not stick, and the feeling does not pass. Fabien immediately falls under the spell of his favorite correspondent Olesya who answers him with reciprocity. But he is also attracted and intrigued by another Ukrainian, the mysterious astrologer Ekaterina.
