9 August 2019 | by uninvitedsSee all my reviews

This is a very nice little "slice of life" movie that manages to thug at your heartstrings in just the right way. It lets you escape to a simpler life for a couple of hours and takes you through the story of several very attaching characters, both humans and felines.
