Dostoevsky - impoverished by gambling debts and desperate - makes a Faustian contract with his publisher ...

In return for an advance, he agrees to deliver a novel within a year or lose all rights to his existing and future works

There's now only twenty-seven days before the manuscript is due, and he has still not begun

Despairing, he hires a stenographer, a certain Anna Snitkina, whose passionate determination urges him on to finish the book, thereby saving his career

This Screenplay explores the true story of Dostoevsky's love affair with Anna which it interweaves with scenes from Dostoevsky's novella The Gambler as he dictates it to the woman he is soon to marry
