In a garrison town somewhere in the backwoods of Russia, the three Prozorov sisters—Olga, Masha and Irina—and their brother Andre live in the large, beautiful house their father, an army general, has left them. Raised to be bastions of refinement and taste, but stranded amongst soldiers and smalltown folk with no ambition, they cling desperately to memories of the bright, thriving Moscow they left as children. Unable to bear the ordinariness of their lives, tempers flare and all manner of appetites go unchecked, eliciting wild and dangerous responses from those around them and turning the proper Prozorov home into a place where anything can happen.
