Ivan is five years old, orphaned, homeless, scared, and abandoned in a train station of Moscow. He’s not the only such child in Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union but instead of joining one of the other gangs of children, he is adopted by a pack of wild dogs. Ivan and the seven dogs beg and steal food together, they keep each other warm in the winter, they protect each other from the vicious threats on the streets, and they belong together and love each other.
