The Main Characters:

Anna Karenina – a noble-born St. Petersburg lady and the wife of Alexei Karenin, who is the father to her eight-year-old son. For betraying her husband and giving birth to a baby of her lover she becomes an outcast in the society. She finds the only possible way out in her own death.

Alexey Vronsky is a young officer brought up in a rich aristocratic family of counts. He falls in love with Anna at first sight and finds out that this feeling is mutual. Their secret love relationship yields a baby girl. After Anna’s suicide, he goes to seek death in the war.
