Set around the year 1900 on an impoverished county estate in Russia, Wild Honey features Platonov, a charming schoolteacher whom the local women find irresistible. In addition to his wife, Platonov is being pursued by a predatory widow (who is in turn being courted by a retired colonel), a former girlfriend (who is on her honeymoon), and a determined chemistry student. Characters also include a doctor who drinks and ignores his patients, officers who live on old memories and fall asleep in the middle of important conversations and servants who see more than they are credited with seeing.

"Wild Honey" makes certain that the wrong character arrives at the wrong place at precisely the right moment, all elements of farcical comedy.
