Synopsis: During her wedding ceremony, Princess Mira is snatched by a dragon and is carried away to its lair on a remote island where rescue is impossible. The princess is unharmed and has nothing but a stone cage and a mysterious young man named Arman who finds her food and drink but keeps his distance from her. Who is he, and what's he doing on the island? Is he also the dragon's prisoner?
The movie is in Russian with English subtitles and will be screened at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. The runtime is 110 minutes.
