It looks like a giant's chair, and when Eve sits in it, her hand touches upon a small crystal in the shape of a giant embedded in the rock. Suddenly a huge wind comes out of nowhere and lifts them up. It carries them to the land of giants. The wind which brought them was blown by Trotag, a young giant caught between two worlds. All is not well in the land of giants, for the rogue giants buried under the ground are rising up, causing havoc, creating volcanoes and earthquakes. The creator giants don't know what to do- for their world, the world they took so much care in making, is being destroyed.
