The movie begins with Rell, who is struggling to come to terms with a recent breakup, finding a kitten on his doorstep. He quickly becomes attached to the cat and names him Keanu. However, when Rell's home is burgled and Keanu is taken, he is devastated, and he and Clarence set out to find his beloved cat.
