Plot synopsis
Screen version of the story of the same name by Anton Chekhov. A light-minded woman is married to a gifted and modest doctor. She can’t appreciate her husband’s inward qualities, his company is boring for her and she has a short-term love affair with a young painter. Meanwhile her husband, when curing a diseased man, is infected with diphtheria and dies. Only then does the «hopper» realize whom she has lost.
