Summary Madame Ranevskaya returns to her decaying estate in pre-Revolutionary Russia after an exile in Paris. The estate and its beloved cherry orchard are threatened by Ranevskaya's financial problems. The family must either find their footing in a Russia turned upside down or flounder in a sea of longing and doubt, a luxury that they can literally no longer afford
