Finn and Puss
Finn, a young boy, is lonely. Puss, a cat, is lost. Then Finn and Puss meet. Suddenly Finn isn't lonely anymore, and Puss seems quite happy to be with Finn, too.So, when Finn sees a "Lost" poster put up by Puss's owners, he's faced with a tough decision. Will he do the right thing? This simple story, told in few words, touches on themes of hope, despair, loneliness, and friendship. Above all, it gently explores how sometimes we need to make hard choices but that 'doing the right thing' has its own rewards.
