As the wife of a highly placed government minister, Anna Karenina occupies a secure position within the upper reaches of Russian society, although the chief source of happiness in her marriage is her eight-year-old son. Her meeting with Count Vronsky, a handsome cavalry officer, offers Anna the passionate love her marriage is lacking, but places her at the center of a devastating scandal.
