Plot synopsis
The calendar of national holidays and celebrations is an inseparable element of school life. As the Women’s Day is approaching, each boy is to prepare a symbolic gift for one of the girls visiting the school. Little Misha overcomes his artist’s block and draws a card for his favourite female friend. As it will soon turn out, the most difficult part is still ahead of him as it will be very difficult to be friendly towards the girl on this special day.
