Teenager Adam (Martin) is spending a lonely summer vacation with his parents on rugged Lake Superior, near Thunder Bay. His routine is shattered when he befriends Riley (Moffett) and Nate (Serino), smart aleck local boys who pass the time with reckless, potentially dangerous fun.
A shocking revelation sets in motion a series of events that tests the bonds of friendship and changes the boys forever. With gorgeous location photography and unerring authenticity, Sleeping Giant highlights that critical moment in adolescence when everything seems possible and every dare is an opportunity to test one’s limitations, regardless of the consequences.
Nick Serino won a Canadian Screen Award for his supporting role.
