A “Traces of Nut” FILM
WRITTEN BY Dean Hewison, Richard Falkner and Sam Dickson

No, of course Jacob didn’t have an eye on his drink every second of the night. Who does? It’s not as though guys get their drinks spiked anyway…

Next thing Jacob knows, he has woken up in a big enclosure, wearing a frog costume. Around him are dozens of other people, each dressed as a different endangered native animal. They’re perched on the walls, they’re swinging from trapezes, they’re running on exercise wheels. Watching through the giant glass wall is the Vet, who has tasked himself with saving these species from extinction.

Jacob finds out the hard way what happens to animals who don’t play along. He also learns what happened to the last animal that tried to escape, and why he’s unable to drum up support from his terrified cage-mates. Then the Vet’s breeding program begins… Jacob finds himself sharing his nest with a 45 year old guy also dressed as a frog, and knows the time has come – escape or die trying.
