France | 2 min 30 sec | Fantasy, Musical | 2019 | Short Film (Animation) | English

The sudden arrival of a cat in the ball dance of the mice! But, it kept pretending as if it is a civilized cat who came to enjoy the ball dance only. But his sight is locked on a small mouse. His main intention for coming here today is to catch that mouse. So, the game of cat-and-mouse begins. Who will win in the end?


ইঁদুরদের বল নাচের আসরে হঠাৎ এক বিড়ালের আগমন! ভাব তার এমন, যেন ভাজা মাছটি উল্টিয়ে খেতে জানে না, সভ্য বিড়ালের মত এসেছে বল নাচ উপভোগ করতে। তবে তার নজর ছোট্ট একটি ইঁদুরের উপর, যাকে ধরার উদ্দেশ্যেই আজ তার এই বল নাচে আসা। শুরু হল ইদুর-বিড়ালের খেলা। শেষ পর্যন্ত তবে কে জিতবে?
