In this special Passover story, Larnel Moore, a  young African-American boy, and Mrs. Katz, an  elderly Jewish woman, develop an unusual friendship  through their mutual concern for an abandoned cat  named Tush. Together they explore the common themes  of suffering and triumph in each of their cultures.
