Ancient legends warn children about the Abulele—enormous, furry, and sometimes dangerous monsters who are visible only to those children who need a friend. In this heartfelt family film, Adam, a young boy grieving the loss of his brother, discovers an Abulele living in his building. After sharing a soda (or two), they become close friends. Problems arise when an Israeli Special Force unit arrives to capture the spotted Abulele. Adam, realizing that it is humans who behave like monsters, risks everything to help save his friendly giant.
