1837, winter, Tsarist Russia. Fates of two men become interlinked by love to a certain woman. One of the men is Alexander Pushkin, a poet; the other one – a French baron George d’Anthes. The protagonists’ choices are complicated by an appearance of a sinister and mysterious stranger. “We are wandering in a maze where the only exit has been bricked up” – in a dark court corridor a silent whisper can be heard. Trapped in a world of court intrigues, the men are forced to fight a duel of honor. “The Contract” is a story about love, evanescence and evil, which does its utmost to get human souls into its clutches.
