Sobachye Serdtse, translated into English as Heart of a Dog, is a Soviet made-for-television period piece from the late 1980s and adapted from a book by Mihail Bulgakov. The film takes place shortly after the October Revolution of the 1910s and focuses on the experiments of a surgeon, Dr. Preobrazhensky, who decides to transplant the testicles and a portion of the brain of a slain criminal into the body of a dog named Sharik and observe the results. As time passes, Sharik acquires several behaviors which are more closely associated with a human's personality rather than those of a canine's.
