SCRIPT

In 2012 the Western fauna plummets into an unprecedented economic turmoil. Willy nilly a girafe manages to keep its head above water by using its unique flair to sniff out the last profitable investments around. Soon its services are recognised as prime quality, invaluable even, and the mammal is head-hunted by a number of financial corporations. Months later all forms of investment securities become the bane of banks all over the world and the giraffe is finally sacked from its position at Cling&Gold. The giraffe starts considering the structuring of a speculative network based on the exploitation of human beings.
