    • Synopsis
    • The main character – hedgehog named Jerzy is not a sweet creature carrying an apple on its spines. He wears a baseball cap and flits across Warsaw on a skateboard.
      He loves to party, drink a cold one and score hot chicks. But his life is not all roses. All thetime he has to fight to survive, as he has got many enemies: local skinheads and Vietnamese cooks, who want to turn him into a sour-sweet chicken. Pone day George’s life gets even more complicated, as the Professor steals his DNA and creates his Clone, who is to become a Perfect Celebrity. However, only one true hero may shine in Poland. While the Clone sets the rotten example for the young, causing scandals and spreading moral corruption, the real George has to fight to restore his dignity and regain his good name.
      “George – The Hedgehog” is a hilarious satire on contemporary society, fanaticism, xenophobia and hypocrisy, in the rhythm of terrific tracks by the greatest Polish hip hop star Sokol.
