The Cat


“A Small Comfort” is a story of life, death, transformation and regeneration. An imprisoned woman gazes through the window of her cell at a surreal landscape filled with gently undulating life forms. She dreams of freedom, but even more so, for a companion to ease her solitude. Through a mysterious process she is transformed into a cat and her freedom is granted. However, while free she commits an act of violence against one of the environment’s inhabitants. Her freedom is taken from her again, but she does get her companion, the “small comfort”.
