The married Anna Karenina falls in love with Count Vronsky despite her husband's refusal to grant a divorce, and both must contend with the social repercussions.
This version of the Tolstoy classic lingers longer in Moscow during the weeks that follow the initial meeting of the starstruck lovers-to-be Vronsky and Anna Karenina. The story -- as it unfolds -- also focuses on Kitty, a young woman who is related to Anna's sister-in-law whose marital rift has brought Anna to Moscow. Until Anna shows up, Kitty had hopes of getting Vronsky, who is single and well connected, to propose to her. Ignored by Vronsky, Kitty turns her attention to another suitor, a man who seems to have a lot in common with Tolstoy.
In Imperial Russia, the aristocratic Anna Karenina travels from Saint Petersburg to Moscow to visit her brother Stiva and she meets the cavalry officer Vronsky, who came with Stiva to the train station to welcome his mother.

However Vronsky follows her and she introduces him to her husband Karenin at the train station. Vronsky woos her and soon they have a doomed love affair that will lead Anna Karenina to a tragic fate.
