This lighthearted documentary offers a lively visit into the animal world. A summer cottage becomes the playing field in a contest between the new resident’s cat and the previous occupants’ pet mouse, left behind after escaping his cage. Marcel the cat uses a variety of schemes to capture Chewy the mouse, who becomes increasingly resourceful in his bid to escape.
The new humans in the house don’t care for mice… except in cartoons. They do love their cat, though, and willingly assist the furry predator in tracking down his tiny prey. Marcel and Chewy’s adventure gives us the opportunity to rediscover one of the animal kingdom’s most delightful ongoing duels. These two animals will cross the paths of other species of prey and predator in the countryside around them…and they all up the ante in the age-old game of cat and mouse.
