New York, 1996: A fire breaks out in a warehouse in Brooklyn. A cat who has found refuge there with her five babies fights the flames to rescue them. Even though Scarlett is badly injured and in a miserable condition, she calms down only after she is sure about all her babies being well, safe and sound. A moving story which proves that the love of a mother knows no boundaries.
