Description
Early 1930s. We find Giant, a mysterious Irish colossus who, with his fellow immigrants, sweats blood to build the skyscrapers of Rockefeller Center. For a while, he has not received a reply to the typewritten letters and money he sends to the other side of the ocean to Mary Ann, the wife of one of his colleagues who died accidentally. Giant, who seems to be afraid of nothing, still has not found the courage to reveal to the young woman that she is a widow... What does her silence mean? What would happen if she had left for the New World to join her husband? An entrancing everyday working class tale with a majestic background.
