“I can’t remember which I was first, a money box or a giraffe.

“People keep feeding me coins that I never seem to be able to digest. My nights are full of dreams. Sometimes I become a cuddly toy and someone puts their arms around me. Sometimes I’m in the forest, running in the midst of high treetops.”

Without the giraffe, a little boy would lose his only friend and, later on, a lover of the sky would never reach so high. Blending the animate with the inanimate, the story explores the life which exists in every object that carries emotions and sentiments. Through their relationship with the giraffe, our main characters connect with their ability to love, to befriend, and dream on.
