(2022, Worksheep Studio)

Kipu is a luxury chauffeur in a dark city, where the streets are full of cars and black cats. After he accidentally runs over the entire family of a little cat called Suruaika, Kipu adopts her and does all he can to keep her safe. As Kipu’s love for Suruaika grows, so does her body, and the streets become more and more crowded with black cats, new victims for countless little tragedies.
