When his mothers lose their life savings in a Ponzi scheme, Jack is forced to sell the family cow Bessie, the family's most valuable art sculpture. Jack loses the cow in a card game, and is left with a magic bean. The bean grows into an enormous green stalk which, of course, Jack climbs. There he finds a giant and his wife hiding because of terrible things the giant did to many people. Is the giant the mastermind behind the Ponzi scheme, the one who stole Jack's mothers' money?
