DOCS: Turning Into A Giant

Follow the extraordinary journeys of three individuals with Acromegalic Gigantism: an extremely rare, unpredictable and life-threatening condition that causes the body to grow to massive proportions, transforming people into real-life fairytale giants.

Join the world’s leading doctors as they explain the science behind this seldom-seen syndrome, and learn about the groundbreaking technology top neurosurgeons are employing in the battle to treat patients’ symptoms.

With unprecedented access to a host of Acromegaly sufferers, this documentary shows the bravery of everyday people struggling to cope with the colossal growth of their bodies – and their amazing determination to simply lead normal lives.

Sadly, Tanya passed away after this documentary was completed. May she rest in peace.
