How a cat changes the lives of aspirational migrants, benefit fraudsters and gentrified brexiteers.

A heart-warming tale presents a pivotal moment for Britain: the housing crisis, gentrification, Brexit and a Bulgarian migrant family fighting their increasingly xenophobic working-class neighbours in a London council estate. An apparently owner-less cat which has had enough of the heated atmosphere, barricades itself ‘in the wall’, requiring the residents to collaborate.
