In order to find a new male giraffe for his beloved giraffe Rita, who has lost her mate in an air raid, young Ziad accompanies his father on his journey to steal a giraffe from an Israeli zoo and smuggle it back to the Palestinian Territories. The boy finally gaines the giraffe, but pays a high price for it. It seems mad to steal a giraffe and bring it back to an occupied military zone. But this is GIRAFFADA’s initiative: bring back hope in the dramatic conflict that opposes Israel and the Palestinian people by using the symbol of the tallest and most majestic animal of nature.
