Her mother (Juliet Stevenson) eventually takes pity on the boy, and brings him into the house (after Gerda has thrown down a blanket to him to fend off the cold). Soon, the two are close friends, but a sudden appearance by the Snow Queen injures Kay. He's hit in the eye with a icicle, which we later learn is really a shard of glass from the evil Looking Glass (that shows the evil inside men). Kay becomes ugly in spirit, and eventually goes off willingly with the evil Snow Queen. Gerda, heartsick that her friend Kay has vanished, goes on a magical trek to find Kay, aided by a raven (voice of Patrick Stewart), and other friends along the way. She eventually find Kay, and battles the Snow Queen for his life... ...The Snow Queen (BBC)
