Precocious Paloma has decided to end it all on her twelfth birthday, but an unlikely friendship with grumpy middle-aged concierge Renee (“the hedgehog”) and distinguished new Japanese tenant Mr. Ozu radically changes her understanding of life.
Based on Muriel Barbery’s bestselling novel The Elegance of the Hedgehog and starring Josiane Balasko and Togo Igawa.
