Suffering a mental breakdown after the death of his cat, introverted loner Ted convinces himself that in order to bring his beloved pet back to life, he needs nine human lives to sacrifice in its place. Constructing a cat costume, complete with mask and razor-sharp claws, Ted embarks on a murderous rampage, slashing his way through share houses, backpacker hostels and webcam chat rooms in a savage frenzy. As the butchery escalates, a twisted and bleak romance blossoms between Ted and Claire, a young woman he meets in a support group for recently bereaved pet owners.
