    • Synopsis
    • Big Boy is about a boy whose parents believe the taller he is, the better off he will be. Every morning, at the crack of dawn, Father and Mother stretch Julio, pulling his limbs in opposite directions. The family swells in size, and the youngest two are taken away and distributed amongst the two aunts without offspring of their own. Meanwhile, Julio's remarkable height is used to advertise his parents' homemade growth concoction.
