This is the sound of a decision in the bathroom.

Giraffe is nine years, one month and twelve days old but she’s unusually tall for her age. Her Dad can no longer afford the Discovery Channel, so she sets out on a quest to find the money herself. Accompanied by her suicidal teddy bear Judy Garland, this unstoppable duo adventure out to solve the problems grown-ups can’t.

This is the sound of opportunity.

In a city worn down by austerity politics, this UK premiere charts one girl’s heroic journey through a chaotic adult world.
