Olga, Irina, and Masha are restless. Trapped in menial jobs and uninspiring relationships, these sisters yearn for more than what their small provincial town has to offer -- the cosmopolitan and sophisticated life of Moscow. This heartfelt new version of Chekhov's classic play passionately retells the three women's attempts to rise above their dictated circumstances and examines the timeless question -- is happiness mandated by fate or can fulfillment be of your own making?
