ANIMATION Rudolf is a sweet little black cat that lives a sheltered life with his family in the Japanese city of Gifu. One day, he wants to undertake an excursion and lands in the cargo area of a truck, finally ending up in far-off Tokyo. Here, he gets to know a stray, Gottalot, who helps him find his feet among the alley cats. At Gottalot's side, an exciting adventure in the big city begins - but Rudolf's homesickness remains, and he tries to find his way back to Gifu.
