Amateur film club production that parodies Russian tragedy literature. The story revolves around two warring families, the Yagustynkas and the Chenstohovas, a romance, a religious curse, and murder. Exaggerated intertitles contribute to the film's "burlesque" of Russian culture and literature.
Discussed in a report with quotes from S. Winston Childs in "Novel Filming," Amateur Movie Makers, July 1927, 31-32. In the report, Childs remarks on his movie club's intention of "burlesquing a Russian tragedy."
