The program guide describes Stray as "a retelling of the classic city mouse/country mouse tale," and indeed the main character Mouse's fierce new drag queen friend Lamé Doré describes him as "just a little, frightened mouse in a big, scary jungle." After running away from his small town to the big city, Mouse runs into the good, the bad, and the drunk. Cute and well done, highly recommended.
