Masaru (Atsushi Ito) is a once-bestselling novelist now suffering from writer’s block and poor sales. Forced by his publisher to introduce a zombie plotline into his latest work, he retreats to a house in the country to nurse the blow to his artistic integrity. A surprise visit from a group of adorable stray cats might be just what he needs to get his life back on track. Mark Schilling of the Japan Times hails this tale of feline-inspired creative inspiration and personal fulfillment as “delightful” and “blood-pressure-lowering.” (Masatoshi Kurakata, Japan, 2017, 92 min., Blu-ray, Japanese with English subtitles)
