    Titles read: "MOSCOW - LOVE ME, LOVE MY SWAN!".

    Russia.

    General view of swans taking to the water at the Moscow pond.

    Park Keeper Pavel Granov leaves his house and is greeted in the snow by the swan Borka. He pats Borka and walks off with the swan following. Commentator tells us that Borka's mate died and he pined away and wouldn't eat or drink. Pavel coaxed the bird into eating and soon the swan was getting better.

    Nice shot of Borka running down a snowy path in the park towards Pavel. He flutters his wings when he reaches him and Pavel strokes the bird's neck. M/S of Pavel sitting on a bench, reading, with Borka standing beside him. Aaah!
