Pharmax is a pharmaceutical company that needs the chemical compound from the juice of the rare fruit Olenge. The chemical compound from Olenge juice is used to make the vaccination for the deadly Z virus. However, the world’s supply of Olenge was recently bought up by Miramas, a cosmetics company. Miramas uses Olenge husks to make their world famous face cream, Omas, which supposedly reverses aging.
Pharmax’s CEO, Max Barr, and Miramas’ CEO, Mitch Barr, are brothers, but are at loggerheads because Max hid, and never returned, Mitch’s favourite stuffed bear, Mickey, 20 years ago.
Mitch is refusing to speak to Max about Olenge unless Max returns Mickey. Max has no idea where Mickey is. Max has told Mitch that the real issue is Miramas’ unethical practice of having all the Olenge producers tied up in 25 year supply contracts, which is exploitation of the Olenge producers, and they should be negotiating about releasing the Olenge producers from their onerous contracts. Although Max has also indicated to Mitch that he is willing to buy the available Olenge stock at $8 per kilogram (knowing that Mitch paid $12 per kilogram), Max also told Mitch that he is being an “unreasonable brat”, just like when they were growing up. Max has also told Mitch that if they cannot come to an agreement by tomorrow, he will tell “mother about Mitch not sharing”.
