Two married strangers meet at a seaside resort and begin an affair. At first, the middle-aged Gurov believes this to be one of his numerous and loveless dalliances. However, he finds himself falling in love with the shy and inexperienced “lady with the dog” who is half his age and unhappily married. Despite their marriages and positions in society, they cannot resist meeting again and hoping for more.
