One sunny day, female kitten Koma decides to make a stop motion film. She
begins to write the storyboards, make the stuffed toys, and draw the
background art. Before long, Koma starts making her film — shooting frame by
frame with her cute 8mm camera, and carefully checking each frame. But her
shooting is interrupted by an obnoxious fly, resulting in an unexpected accident.
Will she be able to complete her project?

Koma, who looks forward to seeing Papa and Mama, received a present from
them. She is delighted with the present, but there is a letter which says they
can’t return home at Christmas enclosed. Koma is so disappointed that her
firend Radi-bo comes up with interesting suggestions…
This is a heartwarming story of Christmas. This work tells the importance of
family ties.
