While young heiress Nancy Archer is driving home from yelling at her husband who is with another woman at a motel, she is encountered by aliens that zap her with some kind of laser. As a result, Nancy finds herself growing to giant size everytime she gets angry. Her incredible anger makes her 50 feet tall and she's now a walking giant searching in a terrified town for her husband who is with his other woman. Written by
