When he hears that the elderly Countess Ranevskaya (Edith Evans) has struck a bargain with the devil to gain the very knowledge he so desires, he worms his way into her household and does all he can to wrestle the knowledge from her - but the price turns out to be higher than he could ever have imagined.
