ABOUT THE FILM

When the Giant came back his home after a long absence, he finds children playing in his garden. In anger, the giant builds a wall around his garden, but for some reason the wall blocks out the advent of spring. Blinded by his own arrogance, the giant finally realizes what is really important thanks to one small boy. The answer he finds is one that will surely ring true in anyone’s heart.
