An adventurous, comic book obsessed young boy meets
the stuff of fantasy when rumours of a colossal robot turn out to be true.
After bonding with the Iron Giant, young Hogarth Hughes makes it his mission to
hide and protect the creature from the suspicious government agent that has
just moved into town. The Iron Giant is a poignant tale about overcoming
kneejerk reactions and learning to think positively about unfamiliarity, as
well as about finding heroism in many forms.
