Made after A. P. Chekhov's play "Platonov". The guests come to a general's widow into the noble estate. Platonov is among them. He is an unfortunate, who was promising in his youth. Here he meets a distant lover Sofia, who disappoints him by her philistinism, mannerism and emptiness. And only his bothersome, but endlessly devoted wife understands his lacerations.
