A young artist, Ayako, struggles with creative block. Suddenly, her beloved cat Beru goes missing, and she goes to look for him around her neighbourhood. During her search though, Beru is not the only one that gets lost. Will Ayako be able to find Beru and her way home? A charming tale about the difference between a 'house' and a 'home', and how the latter can be renewed and redefined as we grow.
