Based on the play by Anton Chekhov, this drama focuses on the three Prozorov sisters -- Olga, Masha, and Irina -- who long to escape their small Russian town and return to Moscow, where they grew up. Entering the women's melancholy orbit are military men such as Dr. Chebutikin and Colonel Vershinin, who serve mostly to complicate the sisters' lives, particularly when Vershinin and Masha begin an ill-advised affair.
