Summary
Nearly a thousand miles away from their beloved Moscow, three sisters live in virtual exile. Olga attempts to support her family and home that is the sole legacy from their late father. Masha finds relief from an empty marriage by being involved with a passionate young colonel. Irina wills herself to return the affections of an ardent suitor in the hope that he will whisk her off to the city. Sift through the debris of their shattered dreams on the eve of the social and political upheaval that will transform Russia forever
