Manau, Rikardas pasiilgo mamos. Dėl to galima stipriai liūdėti.

Rikard (by Christian Andrén) is an autistic and severely deformed man who tries to find his way back to his long lost mother. Convinced that she will take him back if only he wins the Nordic championship of petanque, Rikard tries to do the impossible. After all, there is a 200-feet giant on his side to help him. The Giant is a creative story of friendship and isolation, as well as an emphatic portrait of those who face unique challenges.
