Prince Mishkin (Yuri Yakovlev), a young and penniless nobleman, returns from Switzerland to St. Petersburg and attempts to redeem Nastasia Filipovna (Julie Borisova). But the Prince finds it hard to stand up for decent people, when his behaviour creates conflict with Nastasia's protector and her lover. Director Ivan Pyriev adapted the film from the Dostoyevsky novel.
