I Give You my Word
Based on the novels by Mikhail Seslavinskiy
Two schoolboys, Mishka and Dimka, are preparing for the school classes competition. A couple of days before it day Mishka falls into the river. He can’t swim, but fortunately gets rescued by a homeless dog. Shortly after the four-legged friend is caught by an animal control, and only two boys and their lovely classmate Helena can save Sawa from death. But they have to ignore the school competition, while the attendance is strictly obligatory.
