Plot Summary

The 20th century is just around the corner. In winter, St. Petersburg transforms into a fairy tale-like wonderland where frozen rivers and canals serve as the iced-over roads and bustle with skaters and markets. The city is home to 18-year-old Matvey who works as an ice-skating delivery boy at a local bakery. The son of a poor lamplighter, his only treasure is a pair of silver-plated skates he inherited from his father. When he is unjustly fired he joins a gang of pickpockets who work the canals, led by the revolutionary-minded Alex. Meanwhile, a high-ranking official's daughter Alisa feels like a prisoner in her father's mansion. She dreams of studying science which goes against her father's conservative views on a woman's role in society. One day their paths cross.

Trivia When Alice has her examination she is supported by a senior scientist. It is Dmitri Mendeleev (1834-1907), a famous Russian scientist, who is the founder of the Periodic Table of Elements. In 1869 he presented his discovery to the Russian Chemical Society. See more »
Goofs Prof. Mendeleev resigned from St. Petersburg University in 1890 and quit lecturing, so he would not have been involved with teaching students when the depicted events take place (1899 - 1904). See more »
