Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In a tale that skillfully captures the essence of a child's naivete and independent spirit, Senka (Alyosha Vesselov) is puzzling over his mother's announcement that a baby brother is on the way. After some consultation with his friend Matruska (Yulia Kosmacheva) about whether babies come from storks or from the cabbage patch, the two let the question stand. When Senka's mother has to go to the hospital, he and Matruska get into a bit of mischief but are helped out by a kindly widow. To Senka's dismay, he finds out on his mother's return that his baby brother is really a baby sister. Definitely at odds with this news, especially since he's been scolded so much recently, Senka and Matruska take the baby out to the cabbage patch and drop it off for the nice nurse who is going to be married soon. Fortunately, the ever-vigilant widow is nearby and sees all.
