There are many different conflicts in this story, but the main one becomes the fact that Gurov and Anna love each other, but are married to other people. What at first they thought was just an affair, has turned romantic, with Gurov and Anna loving each other. THe resolution of this confict is that they will be together in the future. So miserable are they without each other, that they are willing to suffer a rough road to be with each other.
