It's 3AM on a Sunday in the middle of the desert, and Aldo wants a giraffe, but not just any giraffe will do. Aldo requires the particular one housed in the glass display case in a creepy pawn shop at the edge of nowhere. His parents are at loose ends to satisfy the five-year-old, unaware that he is being guided by a demon-posessed rat with an agenda of its own.
