This evocative period/contemporary romance filmed in Prague and Pasadena.  The story of Lydia's (Anna Simone Scott) infatuation with Chekhov and conflicts with her husband, Mikhail (Neil Dickson), is interwoven with the contemporary story of lovers, George (Neil) and Nicole (Anna), who are on location in Prague making the period film based on Nicole's play.
