Sara's is worried about her grandmother: she seems tired and sad, and her Japanese bakery seems to be mostly empty these days, lacking the bustle of customers of previous years. And to make things worse, the Lucky Cat (Maneki Neko) sculpture in the front window has mysteriously disappeared. Is the bakery's luck gone forever? With the appearance of a shadowy cat around the bakery at night, Sara is provoked to take matters into her own hands, and along with her (Japanese pastry-loving) friend Jake, decides to solve the Missing Cat mystery.
