'The Hedgehogs' are a group of youngsters who are trying to gain control of the empty space between the blocks of flats, which they want to convert into a basketball court. The resistance of the neighbors is soon overcome and the court is laid down. Training courses in basketball for kids are set up. The ambitious coach is selecting only those of the boys who are able to carry out his most absurd orders. Two of them happen to be late, so he immediately fires them from the team. Thus the 'hedgehogs' war' against the indifference of the adult breaks out. The boys do not give up readily.

But presently a rude pushy neighbor, who has no other concern but the safety of his expensive Ford car, returns from abroad.

Well, actually i was one of the many kids that took place in the audition for that movie back in 1979. I still remember the whole thing very clearly - the big studio, the "waiting room", lots of the-then-Bulgarian film stars, etc... The whole thing started when few guys from the Bulgarian Film Corporation came and visit my school, looking for kids for the roles distribution. Luckyly i was chosen for the cast and i loved it coz meantime i read the book, but I was unfortunate in the final casting, when the film makers choose another boy for the role I was supposed to take. Well never mind! The boy really played excellent and the movie IS still a "Bulgarian Classic"!!
