Plot synopsis
A screen version of Anton Chekhov’s play Cherry Orchard. The land-owner Lyubov Andreevna Ranevskaya’s birthday party. It is spring, cherry trees are in full bloom. But soon the beautiful orchard will be cut down and the estate is doomed to be sold to repay the debts. The madam and her daughter Ania come back from Paris to say farewell to the estate. All the generations of the inhabitants of the «nobility’s nest» come together. The characters in the movie belong to three different epochs: some live in the past and are immersed in sentimental memories of the bygone days, others are busy with urgent affairs and try to make profit out of air itself, while others look far ahead and do not notice what is going on right under their noses.
