After having stayed in Paris for several years, the widow Ranevskaya returns to her family home in Russia. She encounters a changed world. The family’s debts have become so great that the house and estate will have to be auctioned.

Businessman Lopakhin sees a way out. He proposes to cut down the cherry orchard and use the land to build summer cottages on, which can be rented out.
