When Prince Nikolayevich Myshkin returns to St. Petersburg from a Swiss sanatorium, he meets two very different women: the beautiful and headstrong Aglaya Yepanchin and Nastassya Filippovna, a woman with a questionable reputation and an ambiguous rich benefactor. Myshkin, a gentle and naïve man, falls in love with both women, but his kind and compassionate nature hinders his ability to navigate both his emotions regarding the two women and intrigues of St. Petersburg society.
