A Tale of Sex, Vodka and Shattered Dreams
 
Village school teacher Platonov is a man who is loved by women. Despite his best intentions he is drawn into a series of extra-marital affairs that all hold the promise of escape from the provincial Russian reality where he and his circle of friends are trapped. Consumed by bitterness and disappointment, they attempt to fill the void in their lives with sex and vodka, blaming their fathers for the mess they’ve been left in.
 
Funnier, more brutal and more wildly passionate than the Chekhov we’ve come to know, this new version of his Platonov shines a light on this band of disaffected thirty-somethings – too old to move with the times, and too young to let go of their dreams.
