Constantine premieres his new play at his uncle's lakeside estate. The group, idling away the languid summer months, includes his mother the famous actress, Madame Arkadina; her companion, the charmingly successful author, Boris Trigorin; and Nina, the young actress whom Constatine dotes on but who only has eyes for Trigorin. The interweaving of their lives, the romance, hope and disappointment create a compelling tapestry evocative of real people and life that ultimately culminates in a deeply moving experience.A compelling tapestry of romance, hope and disappointment that all interweave at a Russian lakeside estate during a languid summer of 1895.
