Synopsis

Based on his autobiography, this is a tale about James Bowen, a recovering drug addict living on the streets of London. After a chance encounter with a stray ginger cat who he decides to name Bob, the busker begins to turn his life around largely thanks to this new feline friendship. The two soon become a hit with tourists and onlookers due to the extraordinary trust shown between one another, with videos of the pair going viral on the internet. This is the true story of how one man and his cat overcame adversity to prevail, becoming inspirational figures to many in the process.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
