This is Saint Petersburg, Russia. All the cooks inside the bakery are busy with their work and the owner of the bakery is monitoring them all. He then calls the delivery boys and asks which one of them is the fastest then calls a boy standing among them and tells him that you have to deliver this cake within twenty minutes. His name is Matvey and he works as an ice skating courier boy. He takes the parcel and girls out and puts on his skating shoes and goes to deliver the cake but suddenly on his way, some troops are standing and a day or stopping the people to go for what because rich and noble man is going to be passed from there so they are making way for him.

He meets with a second wife who is his stepmother of Alice. Then they all sit at the dining table where his wife (Severna) tells him about the New Year celebration to which they are being invited. Nikolai talks about the new sanctuary and the new advancement to which Alice says that the new time has also brought education for the women on which her father says that the novel and respectable women don’t need to go for education but she talks about Queen Victoria and her father becomes angry on this and says that she does not need education.
Matvey goes back to the bakery after delivering the parcel but the owner of the battery gives him the money and says that he is fired from the job because he can’t deliver food in a limited time. Matvey tells him about the troops who stopped him but they are not ready to listen and they throw him outside the bakery.
