Dramatizes the final year of Leo Tolstoy's life as he struggles to reconcile fame and wealth with his commitment to a simpler life, while his wife challenges his decision to leave ownership of his work to the Russian people.“Set in the last tumultuous years of famed Russian author Leo Tolstoy's life, Last Station centers on the battle for his soul waged by his wife Sofya Andreyevna and his leading disciple Vladimir Cherkov. Torn between his professed doctrine of poverty and chastity and the reality of his enormous wealth, his thirteen children and a life of hedonism, Tolstoy makes a dramatic flight from his home. Too ill to continue beyond the tiny rail station at Astapovo, he believes that he is dying alone, while over one hundred newspapermen camp outside awaiting hourly reports on his condition.”
