Act two of the mixed-media following Violet, a young black house cat living comfortably in London. When her owner leaves home to do her part to help ease the suffering of London’s afflicted, and her caretaker falls prey to the plague, Violet is forced to venture out into the world for the first time in her life. In her search for her owner, Violet faces unimaginable dangers, crosses paths with bizarre characters, and forges unexpected friendships, all amidst one of the most terrifying passages of London’s history.
