Cat Ladies is a one hour verité doc­u­mentary that unravels the real story behind the oft-ridiculed ‘cat lady' - a cultural ste­reo­type and figure of ridicule for women of a certain age with too many furry com­pan­ions. Through the intimate portrait of four unique ‘cat ladies' we create a sens­itive and emo­tion­ally honest portrait of women whose lives and self-worth have become intract­ably linked to cats.

It's not the number of cats that defines someone as a ‘cat lady', but rather their attach­ment, or non-attachment, to human beings. They create a world with their cats in which they are accepted and in control - a world where they ulti­mately have value.
