The old cabin in the woods has been the sight of many fun-filled family vacations; but very bad things have happened there as well, especially in the cellar.  No one has been in the cabin for years as far as anyone knows, and it seems like the perfect place for Mia (Jane Levy) to go cold turkey off of heroin.  She will be supported in her effort by childhood friends Eric and Jessica (Lou Taylor Pucci and Jessica Lucas).  He’s a high school teacher and she’s a registered nurse.

Jack (Nicholas Hoult) and Isabelle (Eleanor Tomlinson) heard bedtime stories as children about a great king that, using a magic crown, had defeated a race of giants who live in a realm between Earth and Heaven.  The only way the giants can come to the ground or humans go to their realm is to climb massive beanstalks that grow from enchanted beans.  Jack, being a commoner farmer, and Isabelle, being a princess next in line for her kingdom’s throne, had very different upbringings; but the stories had similar effects on both of them.
