Young Prince Nechljudov is summoned as a judge in a murder trial. A rich merchant was found dead in the room of the inn where he was staying and the prostitute Maslova was accused of the crime.

Convinced that he is responsible for her moral fall, he follows her to Siberia where she must serve her sentence.
