From the duo Mina Mileva & Vesela Kazakova so far we have seen documentary provocations (Uncle Tony, The Three stupids and Secret Services and The Beast is Still Alive) and their feature debut retains some of these qualities.


In realistic styling, the two tell the story of an apartment building in working-class East London, which sounds so up-to-date with the Brexit case. With Bulgarian actors living on the Island for a long time, several British and several debutants, the film, shot in London, sounds authentic while touting the hot potatoes of the contemporary society - tolerance, racism, social differences. All these topics break out as problems between the people in the building, when the municipality decides to repair it and ask for the money from the owners. Among them is a Bulgarian woman called Irina (Irina Atanasova), an artist with two more jobs and a young son at home, who goes looking for like-minded people from the builfing, but unwittingly gets into an altercation with the tenants - people who do not have to pay for repairs but always find what to mumble about while living there on welfare benefits. The cat from the title, however, is a red-haired neighbor who pulls the plot forward with her feline preferences and brings us to the main question - why do people build so many walls between them when they actually want the same thing?
