In the end of the 19th century, lonely and desperate Masha writes a series of love letters to a man who doesn't respond. Her cold and ignorant husband leads his own life not seeming to notice nor care about his wife’s troubles. Masha chooses to live in her own world, in their huge renaissance home trying to cope with her rather bleak future and a quite disturbing past. A short fiction film based on a story by a Russian writer Ivan Bunin.
