    After returning from a sanatorium, the young Prince Myshkin, an impoverished epileptic, faces such unexpected and strange encounters that his mental illness relapses. Failing to understand his infinite kindness and guilelessness, the people he comes across erroneously assume that he lacks intelligence and is indeed an idiot. But is it not those worldly characters who are actually sick?

    About

    Dostoyevsky brings into the corrupted society full of schemers, careerists and self-seekers an atypical hero, into whom he projected his idea of a good and beautiful man, sincere and innocently credulous. A man who keeps hoping and loving.
