Elsie, who lives in a secluded house in the Far North, desperately wishes for a pet to keep her company. So the North Wind creates a magical cat out of snow--but with a warning: the cat must never enter Elsie's warm little house. Full of wisdom and sensitivity, this heartfelt story is perfect for a child's sensibility. But people of all ages will be drawn to this timeless tale of enduring love.

Filmmaker Sheldon Cohen teamed up with other artists who created an original technique especially for this film, notably Jeamy LaBrosse's innovative finger paint animation and Daniel Schorr's watercolour brushwork painted directly onto each frame. This film is inpired by the story from celebrated children's author Dayal Kaur Khalsa.
