Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

A young writer is trapped between his awful actress mother (Laura Betti) and the knowledge that he has only a mediocre talent as a playwright and almost no force of character. After the young man in this story suffers the loss of his mistress to his self-satisfied novelist stepfather, his self-respect is so shattered that he commits suicide. This is an Italian adaptation of The Sea Gull by the Russian playwright Anton Chekhov.
