This Christmas-themed follow-up to the feel-good crowd pleaser, A Street Cat Named Bob is based on the book by former Big Issue seller James Bowen. The first film told the story of how a stray ginger cat changes the life of Bowen (Luke Treadaway), a homeless London street musician and recovering drug addict. A Christmas Gift From Bob sees Bowen looking back at the last Christmas he and Bob spent scraping a living on the streets and how Bob helped him through tough times by providing strength, friendship and inspiration.
Directed by Charles Martin Smith. Starring Luke Treadaway, Anna Wilson-Jones, Kristina Tonteri-Young, Bob the Cat.
