Amelia the Hedgehog waits patiently in a pet store hoping to be adopted. Losing faith in herself and feeling isolated from everyone around her she battles an intruder in the shop one dark night and discovers a deep courage as well as a superpower and a very dashing red cape. Saving the day proves to everyone and to Amelia herself that being spiky does not mean she is neither lovable nor adoptable.
