This take on the well-known fairy-tale is set in the 1950s with Jack and his mother running an American diner underneath a flyover. Business is suffering so in order to save their livelihood Jack’s mother asks him to buy the best coffee beans he can find. When he comes back with baked beans instead, she throws them out resulting in the growth of the beanstalk. Luckily, he finds a giant with excellent cooking skills at the top who might just be able to save the family business.
