The film revolves around a cat food factory that starts using human flesh in their products, leading to a variety of gruesome events. The movie opens with a scene where a cat food factory in the small town of Mortavia is struggling to make ends meet. The owner, Landau, decides to save money by using human bodies instead of dead cats to make the food. Along with his partner, Maltby, they dig up freshly buried corpses and grind them up to sell as cat food. However, their sinister plan goes awry when they realize that the human flesh makes the cats incredibly aggressive and bloodthirsty.

Meanwhile, two detectives, Detective Griff and Detective Kline, are investigating a series of disappearances in the town. They suspect foul play but are unable to find any clues until they stumble upon the cat food factory. One of the cats attacks Kline, who is hospitalized and unable to continue the investigation.

The remaining detective, Griff, becomes obsessed with finding out what is happening in Mortavia. He starts to investigate the cat food factory and discovers the horrifying truth about the human flesh being used. Along the way, he meets Landau's daughter, Angie, who is also investigating her father's factory. Together, they try to expose the gruesome reality of the cat food industry in Mortavia.
