Early 20th century. Saint Petersburg. A boy and a girl meet at the Tsarskoselsky railway station but get separated a few moments later. As they grow up the two walk the same streets of Petersburg. However only twenty years later the mystical connection which emerged between them in childhood brings these young people back to the place where they had first met.
