Israeli actor Tzahi Grad makes his debut as a writer/director with the complicated caper Giraffes. The opening chase scene involves an unidentified woman falling from a building. The story flashes back to a night of confusing mix-ups involving three women who live in the same apartment building in Tel-Aviv: Efrat (Meital Dohan), Dafna (Liat Glick), and Avigail (Tinkerbell). Avigail accidentally goes to Dafna's film shoot, Dafna accidentally goes on Efrat's blind date, and Efrat gets into a dangerous taxicab situation. When the cab driver turns up dead and Efrat discovers a bunch of money, she goes on the run. Desperately looking for a lawyer, she meets up with Avner (Micha Selektar), who was supposed to be her blind date in the first place. Things get even more convoluted when it's revealed that Avigail is a magazine journalist writing the whole caper for a movie script. Giraffes was shown at the 2003 Vancouver Jewish Film Festival.
