Anton Chekhov, a humble Russian doctor, writes novels he sells to newspapers to feed his family. As his talent gets noticed by his peers, Chekhov even gains Tolstoy's admiration. But when his brother dies from tuberculosis, Chekhov, remorseful, decides to flee his escalading notoriety and travels to the penal colony of the Sakhalin Island, in Siberia, to write about the depraved society the convicts live in. This journey will inspire some of his most brilliant and famous pieces.
