The mid-19th century, St. Petersburg. A Russian nobleman lives his life without leaving his bed. He dreams about the ideal life with no problems, no struggle, no worries. When the possibility comes to fall in love, to marry his beloved and to try living life he has always dreamt of, Oblomov returns to his bed. The life turns out to be too frightening for him.
