This is a story about a short-tailed kitten lacking confidence. He never left his parents and home full of caring and warmness. One day he became homeless by accident. While wandering alone on the street he met “Cat boss” – who taught him the law of the jungle. However, the short-tailed kitten was not happy because he was often in a fear to be defeated if he was not strong enough.

Finally he couldn’t take it anymore. He decided to leave Cat boss and went on a journey to look for himself. He met the other homeless and Maria who worked in the foreign country. In the end he met Madeleine, a travelling poet, and realized that there are more ways to survive in the jungle. Yet, more possibilities for him to discover.
