Based on manga artist Yumiko Oshima's autobiographical book about the daily lives of artist Asako and her cats, Isshin Inudo's drama, set in Tokyo's Kichijoji district, conveys the area's laid-back atmosphere. Kyoko Koizumi plays Asako, who, after the shock of her cat's death, finds she cannot continue creating a new manga, but her inspiration returns when a new kitten arrives at her house. The film depicts their relationship and offers a glimpse of the loneliness of a 40-something single woman.
