Humbert, a brilliant professor of French literature in New England, rents a room from a lonely widow, Charlotte, who falls in love with him. She is a giddy and talkative lady who embodies what Humbert hates most in the world, but she has an invaluable asset: her daughter Lolita, a bewitching nymph who irresistibly reminds the professor of his tragic childhood love.
