Based on the story by Branko Ćopić, this animated short captures a hedgehog who lives in the forest, surrounded by wild strawberries, mushrooms and lively trees. He is well respected and loved by all other animals in the forest. However, Hedgehog’s devotion to his home causes curiosity and envy of other animals. One night, the fox, the bear, the wolf and the wild boar await the hedgehog in order to see his home. Ultimately, the four animals end up mocking the hedgehog’s little house. The film is narrated by Rade Šerbedžija, with subtitles in English.
