Together they share a vigorous sex-life only marred by her failure to conceive. The insecure woman, to keep her husband from straying, adopts a Ganka, a 13-year old orphan. The dark-eyed girl is beautiful and it soon becomes obvious that Trofim is attracted to her. Time passes and sure enough, he ends up sleeping with her too. This does not set will with Sofia. She begins to plot Ganka's demise after the girl fails to die during a flood.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
