This intensely romantic film tells of the year-long love affair between a Russian ballet dancer and Joe Merrick , a US newspaperman based in Moscow. Joe finds the ebullient dancer's lifestyle bewildering, and is further shocked by the indiscreet black-marketeering of their friend, Kostya. It is a situation that leads, almost inevitably, to a tragic outcome.
