To pay the rent on the family home, Jack has to sell the beloved cow. On the way home he gives the money to a crone in exchange for a magic bean and falls in love with the daughter of the Baron who's demanding the rent in the first place. Fast forward to the next day and the whole crowd are up the giant beanstalk to discover a smallish giant who hasn't been eating the girls sent up to him on their twenty-first birthdays, but has been treating them in his theme park, Ogreland. Thus Jack's long-lost sister is now, in fact, the Giant's wife, and even the Baron's wife is still alive and kicking. She redoes the Baron's accounts and finds enough money that everyone is let off rent for a year and Jack can marry his girl.
