When an Iraqi family is forced to flee their home, they can't bear to leave their beloved cat, Kunkush, behind. So they carry him with them from Iraq to Greece, keeping their secret passenger hidden away.
But during the crowded boat crossing to Greece, his carrier breaks, and the frightened cat runs from the chaos. In a moment, he's gone. After an unsuccessful search, his family continues their journey, brokenhearted.
A few days later, aid workers in Greece find the lost cat. Knowing how much his family has sacrificed already, they are desperate to reunite them. A worldwide community comes together to spread the word on the Internet and in the news media, and, after several months, the impossible happens—Kunkush's family is found, and they finally get their happy ending.
This remarkable true story is told by the real people involved and with the full cooperation of Kunkush's family.
