The wood demon: A rich landowner wants to sell his house and forest, much to the displeasure of the wood demon, an ecologically minded doctor whose passion is to preserve Russian forests; The proposal: The wealthy landowner Lomov seeks to marry his neighbor Chubukov's 25-year old daughter Natalia. Lomov is entirely at ease with Chubukov, who quickly gives his consent, but Lomov proves completely inept at actually proposing to Natalia; The wedding: A bridegroom's plan to have a general attend his wedding backfires when the general turns out to be a lowly naval captain
