Second-rate opera singer Nick Volker is having a bad day, until he goes for a walk in his neighboring woods and finds a stray cat. Almost immediately his life begins to change, dramatically. And then even more dramatically. Suddenly he’s no longer a second-rater, he’s now in line for lead roles and a beautiful soprano is on his doorstep. But the Federal Department of Homeland Security is also interested in him, and not for reasons he likes. What is there about this cat that’s made such a difference? And is it even a cat, or. . . something else?
