Daniel and his mother look out their window at the smoky night below. There are looters on the street, fires in the distance. Daniel clutches his cat, Jasmine. But later, when they're forced to leave their apartment building, Jasmine can't be found.
Mrs. Kim's cat is missing, too. Where are they? They can't be with each other. Those cats don't get along...
"Smoky Night" is a story about cats - and people - who couldn't get along until a night of rioting brings them together.
