250 years after the Maltese public is still awaiting justice: an important treasure which was stolen from it is expected to be returned to the Maltese islands. The Prime Minister is a bundle of nerves until the Minister of Foreign Affairs returns with this precious object.

That said, not everything goes on as planned. From this point on, strange and unbelievable events begin to happen. What was meant to be a political triumph became an utter PR disaster. A race to find the devil giraffe that has been terrorising the streets of Valletta. The Police Corp gets confused and the Prime Minister comes up with an ingenius idea.

On Friday 13th May (after the performance), a Taħdita Teatru will be organised with Antonella Axisa, Daniel Azzopardi and Aleks Farrugia to discuss the process behind this play from page to stage.
