EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BOB’S STORY

PLOT OF BOB
James Bowen is a former heroin addict who lives on the streets of London with very little money. His support worker Val helps him into a council apartment and prescribes methadone after a potentially fatal drug-related event to get him off the streets. James finds a cat rummaging through his food on the first night he spends in his apartment. James assumes the cat has somehow escaped and tries to bring it back to its rightful owners. After releasing him, the cat returns to James’ apartment later that evening with a purulent gash on his rear leg. James contacts his allergic but animal-loving neighbor, Betty, out of concern. She mentions the cat’s name, Bob, and the nonprofit veterinarian where she volunteers to James. James misses a meeting with Val because he is stuck in a line at the vet.
