Synopsis

Africa is a land of giants, and a place wrought with conflict. When the rains arrive each summer, herbivores gather to feed, and predators follow in their wake. This is the season of plenty for all... Many hungry mouths abound, and death is inevitable... but at ground level, there's a much more complex war underway. Each summer armored beetles become locked in a centuries-long battle for control of the Savannah's most valuable resource... poop. Dung beetles are the real rulers of the Savannah, and two mafia families are going head to head for the lion's share of this summer's dung supply. The Roller family operate above ground, while the Digger family move in dark underground tunnels and alleyways. They respect each other's turf and operating hours - the Rollers own the daytime trade, while the Diggers rule the night... But they both depend on the same dung supply for food, for finding a mate, and for breeding their next generation... and there's not always enough to go around.
