I Kill Giants

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Life is not easy for our young Barbara Thorson. Defiant, precocious, outspoken, and a loner, Barbara relates more to the make-believe world of Dungeons & Dragons. At home, she makes life difficult for her older sister, Karen, who is responsible for taking care of her and her brother. At school, psychologist Mrs. Mollé takes an interest in Barbara's increasingly worrisome behaviour. As she deals with loss and bullying, Barbara's imagined life begins spilling into her real one and she becomes obsessed with what she sees as her quest: killing giants. It's only when she's forced to face the truth and overcome her fears that Barbara is able to confront her demons.
Based on the Man of Action Graphic Novel 'I Kill Giants' created by Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura.
Official Selection Toronto International Film Festival 2017 - Discovery and TIFF Kids - World premiere
