DIRECT HEIRESS

Category: Edition 1983

Synopsis
An imaginative 13-year-old teenager maintains that the great Russian writer Alexander Pushkin was her direct ancestor, something that intrigues a 19-year-old cousin who comes to visit. She takes him to a decaying country house that she says was the place where her illustrious forbear trysted with a certain young lady. When he hears more of the girl's story and sees the house, her cousin starts to have serious doubts about this tall tale, and after he meets an intriguing young lady himself, he shatters his little cousin's illusions with the truth -- something she was not quite prepared to hear.
