A version of Ivan Turgenev's original play.
The action takes place on the Islayev Estate over a period of five days.
Natalya Petrovna is a young married woman who is bored by her life and her marriage to a rich, absent-minded husband. Increasingly frustrated by the loss of her youth, she has become obsessed with her small son's tutor, a young man from Moscow. He in turn appears to be engaged in a flirtation with Natalya's ward, Vera, whom she has always regarded as a daughter but now sees as a rival.
