Story about childhood friends who found each other later in life....
11 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Story about 3 childhood friends who found each other later in life and decided to rafting on one of the Moscovian rivers. In their 3 week trip each one of them have a change to look within themselves and maybe correct all the wrongs in their lives...........On of them, the agricultural engineer find his long lost romance. The other one, the neurosurgeon performs dangerous surgery and the third one who is a famous architect turns from pompous blue-blood that he is into a normal person.

This is the kind of movie that makes you fell warm inside and no matter how bad your day was if you watch this movie it'll all be better. I strongly recommend that you watch this movie.
