( YUYAMA KUNIHIKO 湯山邦彦 & SAKAKIBARA MOTONORI 榊原幹典 / 2016 / U / 89 MIN  )




Naive stay-at-home kitten Rudolf has always longed to roam the streets of his little neighbourhood. When his thirst for adventure inadvertently finds him lost in the big city, he meets Ippaiattena, a seasoned stray cat with the ability to read human language.

The odd pair strike up an unlikely friendship and Rudolf quickly discovers that he has a lot to learn about the world.
