Vula is hoarding more than 30 sickly cats that have completely destroyed her home. They have used every square inch of the house as a litter box, including the kitchen, which is filled with piles of hoarded food. Animal Control and the city attorney have now stepped in, leaving Vula no choice but to clean up or face eviction and the demolition of her home. Lisa, a 30-year-old fifth grade teacher, has already lost one job by bringing her hoard from home to the classroom. She now fears that her current job is at stake and that her three-year relationship with her boyfriend is suffering. As her mother and sister help with the clean-up it becomes clear that hoarding runs deeper in the family than anyone has been willing to admit.
