He feels homesick and decides to return to France with two American friends, Andrée and Adel. He helps them discover his native region, the North of France and Douai, the city where he grew up. There, the celebration of "Gayant" ("Giant" in the regional dialect) takes place. During three days of festivities, a family of giant puppets made of wicker parades in the streets of the city, inspiring the awe of spectators. Thomas and his friends are astonished by the parade, the enthusiasm of the crowd but also by the commitment of the "porteurs", the men who lift the giants. Our friends encounter one surprise after another and meet local figures who share the love of the region, its dialect and culinary recipe. They experience the excitement of parading with those puppets - which, although made of wicker, seem to come alive - and feel renewed with the assurance that humanity is capable of ingenuity based on common cause and shared values.
