This documentary mosaic depicts seven years in the lives of Diana, Lida and Vica. All three women try to obtain some security and a higher social status – not an easy thing in the patriarchal culture of today's Russia. In order to achieve their goals, they sign up for a “school of seduction” where they learn how to live, think and act in order to be loved. At a time when equality and self-fulfilment are the topic of the day, School of Seduction tells a very important story.
