Irma Vainu is an eighteen year old young girl with the whole wide world at her feet. She has just graduated from the high-school in her small hometown, where nobody else had so good grades as her. And Irma believes that with grades like that the world must be open to a person even if she is only a daughter of a poor mother. With grades like that you can even go to England or to the city and learn and become an educated woman.

And this is exactly what Irma is going to do, although Kalmu Eedi offers her roses and his heart and promises to wait for her. But Irma is not like other girls who only think about boys and love and marriage. Other girls would take the roses and wear them near their heart, but other girls didn't have Irma's grades! Irma doesn't need roses or love, she has a totally different future waiting for her!

So the eighteen year old Irma Vainu goes to the city where she meets Rudolf Ikka.
