Kashtanka is a sweet dog who has been separated from her owner, the cabinet maker, and roams the cold streets. A man finds Kashtanka and takes her back to his house. This man is a clown and also has a pet duck and cat that he trains to perform in the circus. One night the clown's duck, Ivan Ivanych, dies and Kashtanka must fill the Ivan's place. As soon as Kashtanka is brought to the circus ring with the clown to perform the first trick her past owners see her and quickly call her name. Kashtanka is reunited with the cabinetmaker and the clow and his circus become a distant memory. ( )
