Esteemed writer Boris Trigorin, the lover of domineering and selfish actress Irina Arkadina, seduces young innocent Nina Zarechnaya as a diversion. Once he has tired of the girl's company, Boris rejects her advances and sends her scurrying back to her beau, Irina's playwright son Konstantin, who is praying for a reconciliation. Konstantin has invested all his love in Nina so if she rejects him, the consequences will be catastrophic. Irina's brother Sorin bears witness to the carnage.
I love this!
