Fleeing a violent thunderstorm, a young goat named Mei becomes separated from his tribe and takes shelter in a cabin. He soon is not alone, as another creature limps inside. In the dark they cannot see each other, both have colds and cannot smell each other, but in conversation assume they are of the same kind for they have much in common even apart from a shared fear of thunder, having been taught by elders to run fast to survive and to value loyalty and friendship. They agree to meet the next day for a picnic, with the words "stormy night" used to identify each other.

They continue to meet secretly with Gav fighting off his natural predator tendencies. One day Gav helps Mei escape a wolf hunt, and they are observed together.

A beautiful animated movie, worth watching by anyone.
26 December 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This movie can be considered a piece of art, not thanks to the outstanding background renderings or the beautiful voice acting, but for all the different messages that you may get from it. I really believe this movie will at least touch you with something.

I think kids might enjoy this one but I sincerely believe they won't be able to get as much as an adult would be able to; so yes, this is an animated movie but that doesn't mean it's only meant to be watched by kids.

It's a definite "must watch" for those who like movies that contain deep messages rather than those which are only shown in the shallow area of the images. Really one of the best and very worthy animated films I have watched.

It's one of those films that must be watched without having any idea of what the main theme is, just let the things unfold before your eyes and let the environment and atmosphere of the scenes get to you. Otherwise you won't enjoy it as much as the whole team who participated on the creation wants you to enjoy it, for your mind would be already expecting things, resulting in a lack of suspense.
