Young Dr. Vincent Harcourt was content with the course of his life and wouldn’t have agreed to be Dr. Varkan’s accomplice had he known the true purpose of the experiment.
Derek Nortram, an intern at Oberon Innovations with a bright future, was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Mysteriously rejected from Oberon Innovations’ new Regeneration Program, Dr. Rhaseba Varkan thought perfecting a risky genetics experiment would be his redemption. Despite his successful secrecy, however, a sudden accident in the lab contaminates him, Vincent, and his godson, Derek, with a premature solution of radiation and stem cells, causing their bodies to grow exponentially, with only minutes to escape the confines of the building.
Vincent and Derek find Rhaseba’s upbeat coaching on giantdom irritating at best, amidst the humiliation of public panic, surviving on ambushing grocery trucks in the night, and the likelihood of losing their freedom and research to the government if they can’t derive a corrective formula in time. Too huge for indoor spaces themselves, who can they trust to correct the formula in their stead? And Derek’s scientist uncle, a long-time rival of Varkan’s, is all too happy to take advantage of that—even at Derek’s expense. However, when Derek finds acceptance through an old pastime and Vincent relearns to kiss his girlfriend, they discover the fate-altering hope in embracing one’s inner giant.
