A story about basketball and befriending. Gar is a High School journalist who, while covering the team to the state championship, is best friends with the teams' main "Star" Matt Dunbar.

Written and Directed by Rusty Gorman and starring Haley Joel Osment "Home of the Giants' proves to be more than just a basketball movie - it's a thriller full of suspense and action drama.
Haley Joel Osment is fantastic as 'Gar', Robert Gartland. Osment has successfully made the transition from cute to handsome. In "home of the Giants" he plays the role of a high school journalist who's best friend and 'hero', Matt Morrison (Ryan Merriman) is the school basketball team's star player. Both Osment and Merriman give excellent performances.
The friendship of these best friends is pushed to its limits when they become involved with Matt's criminal brother Keith (Kenneth Mitchell).
This coming-of-age film has plenty of twits and turns and will keep you in suspense right until the very end.
