What if the giant wasn''t the scary dude we always thought he was? And what if he really loved his hen that lays the golden eggs and then some human comes and steals her away? In this version of the well known story, not only is the giant softhearted and kind, but he meets every nursery rhyme Jack along the way. And other Jacks and Giants learn a valuable lesson - being kind is more important than anything else, except for a valuable laying hen!
