The director of the Théâtre de la Cité in Toulouse, Galin Stoev, directs the famous Russian playwright Anton Chekhov with a remarkable cast.

So, everyone clings to the present moment and to the hope of passion to feel alive, if only for a moment... Behind this fervor hide their failed lives and an unbearable thirst for tenderness.
