Pwtan, a brave and adventurous kitten, manages to find her way off the back of a rocking horse and into a flower bed where she takes on a geum, rolling on the leaves, biting a stem, attacking the blooms. Indoors, on a sofa, she meets her match: the film-maker’s daughter, Fiona, whose style of play is much like that of Pwtan herself. Fiona’s father, William Lloyd Ellis of Pwllheli, filmed local activities and a number of short dramas involving local people.
