I have always been a sucker for a good narrative, and for the past few months there has been no greater opportunity for me to craft one than in my time with the Fuel Rats.

With the clock ticking on a client’s survival, the Fuel Rats have to quickly jump into action. What happens next? Check out the video for yourself:
