On a starry night, somewhere in a thick dark forest, a timid little hedgehog prepares for his regular visit at the humble home of his best friend, the bear, to drink tea from his samovar and to count the countless stars in the sky. However, as a heavy fog like no other shrouds the wild woods, the helpless hedgehog will start wandering in the powdery mist with a jar of raspberry jam in his hands. And, before long, terrifying nocturnal encounters and mysterious occurrences start sending shivers down the spine. Will the young visitor of the night find his way home?
