Summary, etc.:
The Giants is a moving coming-of-age film about small kids with enormous hearts. Brothers Seth (Martin Nissen) and Zak (Zacharie Chasseriaud) are two young teens left to their own devices when their mother abandons them in their dead grandfather's house. As money grows thin during the long summer days, they befriend another loner, Danny (Paul Bartel), who hooks them up with a small time drug dealer interested in renting their place. When that goes violently wrong, the ragged trio hits the road on a Huck Finn-style journey of adventure and self-discovery.
