Outline

A boy named Jiro, who gets sick and visits a hospital with his father, is diagnosed as having cat flu. Since this disease usually only affects cats, the doctor speculates that the boy is a cat and recommends to take a test. An allegory about the child’s identity, depicted with simple coloring and graphical touches reminiscent of a picture book.
