The good and kind Prince Myshkin returns to Russia after several years in a Swiss sanitarium where he was treated for epilepsy and “idiocy”. Once back, Myshkin hopes to collect his inheritance and be among people again, but his plans take a different turn when, on the train home, he meets Rogozhin. Rogozhin is the opposite of Myshkin: aggressive, corrupt and obsessed with status. When the men finally return to Petersburg, the Prince finds himself a stranger in a strange world. Western influence has turned Russian society (including the Prince’s own family and friends) into one dominated by money and power. The Prince tries to influence others with his kindness but only finds himself embroiled in scandal. After Rogozhin tries to kill him and he is left by the girl he loves, Prince Myshkin begins to realize that the goodness in his heart is no match for the evil in the hearts of others, but will his realization come too late?
