After her father shoots himself by accident, Annushka calls her new stepfather Daddy David. David and the child grow to love each other deeply. On her return from overseas, David and Annushka realize they are in love, and plan to marry after David obtains a divorce from her mother. While overseas once again, Annushka hears nothing from David, then receives a short letter from him saying that he is not coming. She rushes home to learn that David stabbed her mother to death, and has been incarcerated in a home for the criminally insane.
