Jack swaps his cow for a bag of beans which his mother throws out the window. Overnight a beanstalk grows and Jack climbs it to find a giant's castle. Here he charms the wife and steals the giant's possessions, he gives them to a local merchant whose daughter Jack wishes to marry. He eventually kills the giant and even with blood on his hands the merchant allows him to marry his daughter.
