The film is based on the short story “The Revenge” by A.P. Chekhov with the events transferred to our time. Pavel is an actor in a small theatre in a backwoods town. His career is in decline but he still wants to be acknowledged and hopes the new play will bring him the success he desires. He’s got one of the leading roles in the play, but one small accident turns everything upside down. Though a light comedy, “The Revenge” is about the internal conflicts. So typical for an artistic world, they can lead to tragic rivalries.
