Plot synopsis
Around 1910, young Lara was seduced by Komarovski, the protector of her mother, and to get rid of him she married Pavel. The latter, realizing that his wife does not like him, decides to enlist in 1914 to fight the Germans. Lara, mother of a little girl, Katia, goes as a nurse to the front lines and meets the military doctor, Yuri Zhivago. The latter after three years of service in the Army reunited with his family when the Revolution of 1917 broke out. To escape fighting and famine, they decide to go and live in a quiet and comfortable villa in the Urals. At the library in the nearby town, Youri Zhivago finds Lara and between them a deep and painful love is born. In the city reigns the political commissar Pavel Strénikov who is none other than Lara's husband. He does not seek to see his wife again but provides her with some protection. Returning from a visit to Lara, Zhivago is arrested by supporters who immediately requisition him as a doctor. A year later he manages to escape and learns that his wife and children have left for Moscow. Later he will learn that they have emigrated. Lara and Zhivago cannot stay where their lives are threatened since Pavel Strelnikov came into disgrace. Then Komarovski reappears, Lara's former seducer. He has enough power to allow Lara and Zhivago to flee to the Far East. Zhivago pretends to agree to save Lara and her daughter, but he stays. He returned to Moscow, abandoned medicine, and fell into wandering and misery. His half-brother, met at random, gives him back a taste for life, but soon after he dies. Lara will arrive in Moscow for the lifting of the body.
