A boy saves the life of a black hen, and is granted a wish. Based on the eponymous 1829 story written by Antony Pogorelsky.

Antony Pogorelsky (1787-1836) was a natural son of A.K. Razumovsky (known for the commission of the Beethoven quartets named after him) and an uncle of Aleksey Konstantinovich Tolstoy. His fairy tale The Black Hen, or Living Underground, written for his nephew, was the first book about childhood in Russian literature, and is what he is best known for.
