A Christmas-themed spin-off to A Street Cat Named Bob - based on the true story of homeless busker James Bowen and his handsome and loyal ginger tom Bob, a stray he nursed back to health.
Luke Treadaway returns with his gentle, sensitive performance as James Bowen with Bob also back filling the role of himself.
It begins the Christmas after James’s literary success, at a swanky publishing party. Sneaking out early from the festivities, a chance encounter with a homeless man on the streets of London provides James with a creative spark.
In a flashback (captioned A Christmas Past) James recalls a bitterly cold winter when the money he earns from busking on the cobbles of Covent Garden barely covers the cost of heating and food for Bob. Charity worker Bea (Kristina Tonteri-Young) and local shop owner Moody (Phaldut Sharma) support James as he wrestles with self-doubt following an unsettling run-in with animal welfare officers.
A life-affirming drama of small and simple pleasures, which celebrates the profound bond between a pet and his human protector.
Dedicated to the memory of the eponymous ginger feline who sadly passed away in June.
