On a silent, starry night, somewhere in a thick and dark forest, a tiny and timid little hedgehog prepares for yet another regular visit at his best friend the bear's place to drink tea from his comforting samovar and to count the countless stars in the sky. However, little by little, a heavy fog like no other will soon shroud the wild woods--and much to the helpless hedgehog's dismay--he will start wandering in the powdery mist with a jar of raspberry jam in his hands, as terrifying nocturnal encounters and mysterious occurrences send shivers down the spine. Will the young visitor of the night find the way to his friend through this dense fog?Written by

In the evenings, the little Hedgehog went to the Bear Cub to count stars. They would sit on the log and sip tea, gazing at the starry sky. It hung on the roof, just behind the chimney. To the right of the chimney were the Bear Cub's stars and the stars to the left were the Hedgehog's.

Yozik v tumane seems to be one of the best cartoons ever. It's both simple and very philosophical, but I like it best because it's very lyrical.At first it all seems to consist of nothing but vague images, but what is our whole life but not wandering in the fog? There's almost no story told, but it's all there - friendship and warmth, lyricism, fears and hopes, wanderings and search for something evasive, something all of us long for and almost never get. More than that - it's full of beauty, high-strung and piercing a human heart. And beauty is something we all search for, even if do not admit it.
