This film is an ode to the love of life and the eternal belief in goodness. At the heart touching story of two boys. Their chance encounter ends in a bargain: Max, a big guy, but not remarkable for his great intellectual abilities, is to lend his legs to the seriously ill but incredibly clever Kevin. And Kevin, in turn, “lends” Max his brains. Helping each other to overcome their complexes and physical defects, the boys become one whole person – my giant. Such a relationship quickly develops from cooperation to great friendship.
