An old Russian general's nightmares are replaced by magical, fun-filled dreams when he adopts a playful dog, to whom he gives the name: Bonaparte as a token to his former enemy. To end a long lasting war grudge of the birds against the General, clever Bonaparte organizes a dog mutiny demanding that all caged birds be freed immediately. Hundreds of dogs sitting on the frozen river are soon in danger as the ice starts to break. The General takes on the challenge to save them, in a touching, poetic tale the history books seem to have forgotten…
