). The story follows Antonina Miliukova, a brilliant and beautiful young woman born into the 19th century Russian aristocracy. She could have anything she desires but she is obsessed with marrying Piotr Tchaïkovski, whom she falls in love with the minute she hears his music. The only reason the composer finally agrees to their union is to put an end to the rumours circulating about him. Feeling no love for her and holding her responsible for his misfortunes and breakdowns, Tchaïkovski tries to rid himself of his wife in brutal fashion. Consumed by her feelings for him, Antonina decides to stick it out and to do anything it takes to stay by his side. Humiliated, disgraced and rejected, she slowly descends into madness… Produced by Russian outfit Hype Films alongside French firms Charades Productions and Logical Pictures, and Switzerland’s Bord Cadre Films, with the support of Kinoprime Foundation and Good Chaos’ Mike Goodridge as executive producer, this feature film will be pre-sold at the EFM on the basis of a promo reel.
