Please give me a detailed explanation of what each component does and the whole circuit in general . Thank you.
Let's work from left to right. What do you think the transformer and diodes and capacitor do? Once we have that settled, we'll move on from there...

The transformer is to step down the high voltage. I think the diode acts as a switch. I know a capacitor acts to store charges but I am not sure what it is doing in this circuit.
