Plot synopsis
"Chekhov, played by Kirill Pirogov, arrives in St. Petersburg already reputed as a literary figure, and meets Lydia Avilova (Svetlana Ivanova), a young writer and an admirer of his work. The two quickly fall in love, but the story cannot be a happy one: He is terminally ill with tuberculosis, and she is married with children. In contrast with modern cinema, their love affair consists of a few meetings, a few exchanged letters and not much else. But a shared understanding of literature and their affection for each other unites the characters until the final frame of the movie. "
