Plot synopsis
A screen version of A. P. Chekhov’s play of the same name.
The old and suffering professor Sérébriakov and his young and pretty wife Elena came to spend some time in the countryside with Uncle Vania and his niece Sonia. Vania is bitter to have spoiled her youth for Serebriakov who never became the expected "scientist". And when the latter offers to sell the property he operates with his niece, he explodes and tries to assassinate the professor. This one leaves with Elena who, resigned, refused the advances of Vania and her friend doctor Astrov that the dream of a society where one would protect nature, does not manage to leave the daily mediocrity.
