About the film
Two elderly ladies live next door to each other; one rainy night they take in a poor stray cat and start giving it some serious pampering. However, the spoiled animal abuses the neighbours’ affection to such an extent that the mounting jealousy between them develops into all-out war... A cartoon which won several festival awards (Avanca: Best Animation, Dervio: Best Direction).
