In a small garrison town, lost in the middle of the Russian countryside, three young women, who arrived there with their late father, a former brigade commander, dream of returning to Moscow where they spent their childhood. Entertained by military visits, the sisters find a semblance of a life. Macha, who married her dull husband at too early an age, falls in love with a commander. Olga finds renewed enthusiasm for life and Irina becomes engaged to a lieutenant.
But it is soon time for the troops to leave, the youngest sister’s fiancé dies in a duel, and solitude once again takes over the lives of these three women, who become disillusioned recluses. The chronicle of several years of a life on the fringes of history and modernity, this four-act drama is an ironic portrayal of a youth without perspective or illusion, as though frozen in a deadly era. The strange mirror of a drifting country, Three Sisters captures the image of a society on the brink of a destiny that cannot be, and that is aware of its imminent end.
