Based on a best-selling novel, first-time writer/director Mona Achach’s charming and thoughtful The Hedgehog is the story of an unexpected encounter.

Paloma, an exceptionally intelligent 11 year old (played by Garance Le Guillermic) wants to end it all on her 12th birthday.

Fascinated by art and philosophy, she documents her life and immediate circle, drawing trenchant and often hilarious observations on the world around her within a Parisian apartment building. But as her birthday approaches, Paloma finally meets some kindred spirits in her solitary concierge Renee Michel (Josiane Balasko) and an enigmatic and elegant neighbour Mr Kakuro Ozu (Togo Igawa).
