Humbert Humbert, a 37-year-old European intellectual and literary critic is attracted to young girls. After renting a flat in a small American town, he meets his landlady Charlotte Haze’s 12-year-old daughter, Lolita. A great passion towards the teenage girl overtakes him. So as to become closer to Lolita, Humbert marries her mother. Humbert’s journal, including a description of his true feelings towards Lolita, fall into Charlotte’s hands; shocked, she runs out of the house and is run over by a passing automobile. Custody over Charlotte falls unto Humbert, who under the pretense of caring for his stepdaughter undertakes a road-trip with her across America. Having gotten closer to Lolita, Humbert keeps her by his side with threats and gifts. Finding the right moment, Lolita runs away to the popular dramatist Clare Quilty, who in turn forces her to act in pornographic films. Humbert searches for Lolita, but to no avail. Three years later, he receives a letter from his already grown-up stepdaughter, requesting money: she is married, with child, and in debt. Humbert goes to Lolita, hoping to get her back, but is rejected. After finding out that Quilty stole Lolita from him, Humbert finds his foe and murders him. For the corruption of a minor and murder, the criminal must stand before court. Awaiting his trial, the “white widowed male” writes his confession, however, before the trial, he dies from a stroke. Having given birth to a stillborn, Lolita too dies thereafter.
