Having fought in the First Carlist War, Martin returns to his family farm in Gipuzkoa only to find that his younger brother, Miguel Joaquín, towers over him in height. Convinced that everyone will want to pay to see the tallest man on Earth, the siblings set out on a long trip all over Europe, during which ambition, money and fame will forever change the family’s fate. A story based on true events.

Two of the territory’s most ambitious filmmakers go big with their period-drama about family bonds, sibling rivalry and evolving in an ever-changing world.
