Something of myth and legend that was mentioned in hush tones by nearly every ancient culture- Giants, huge creatures from another time, are awakened from their slumber and seek to resume their conquest that has been delayed for a millennium as they lay buried within the earth and California is the first target. To help mount a counter-offensive, the US government creates super humans with an experimental serum. These four super-powered individuals could be the last chance for humanity as they all that stand between the end of civilization and the Giants.
