Chekhov's classic bittersweet romantic comedy is re-imagined for Jazz Age Britain by writer/director Mark Giesser. Damian Granville is a banker and devoted family man with an unconventional way of taking his summer holidays: he travels alone and looks for a woman to seduce. This particular year he spots a beautiful young lady walking a white Pomeranian dog. How can he resist? He's a skillful player and sure of success. Another lovely summer interlude. Except Anne Dennis isn't quite what he bargains for.
