“It was never about sort of being famous. I just wanted to be good at what I did.”
A fairy tale character who is about to flunk out of fairy tale school, Jack must perform a heroic deed by Monday or fail miserably, just like his father before him. Anxious to make good, Jack sells his C.O.W. (Computer of Wonder) for a handful of magic beans and a mysterious book that records his adventures as he's having them.
Accompanied by his sidekick Grayson -- a goose who ate a bean and underwent an amazing transformation -- Jack climbs the magic beanstalk to recover the fabled Harp of Destiny from the evil Giant who lives in the sky. Helping Jack on his perilous quest is the spunky Jillian, a fearless young girl whom Jack meets on his journey -- and who just may have a hidden agenda...

Since bursting onto the music scene last year with her double platinum first album 'Pie On My Face', Tildy ST. John has become not just a full fledged phenomenon and household word, but a critics darling and social enigma as well. An astonishing feat for a major star let alone a 27 year old from Pickum, South Carolina who only two years ago was sleeping in a cardboard box in the back alleys of Detroit with her mother, Connie, and her Uncle Clutch, while playing guitar on the streets for spare change. On November 12th 2001, aspiring documentary filmmaker Griffin Mack began to capture the story of this elusive rising star. He never finished. These are those four days. Watch the full movie right here.
