Orlif is a big giant with a big problem.
After being set adrift on a raft by his father in order to save his life, Orlif sails from Denmark to wash up upon the shores of a mountainous, coastal region of Turkey. But although he makes friends with the animals of the island, he is not as appreciated by the people of the nearby island, Kastellorizo (even though he loves watching them sail on the sea).
The people’s fear of Orlif is only deepened when, come the winter, he must decide whether or not to take trees from their island in order to make warming bonfires, leading the people to believe that a disaster has struck the island.
In a traditional fairytale style, Orlif The Gentle Giant
tells a story of love, remorse and forgiveness, as Orlif struggles with his decisions – and the impact they have upon the beloved people of Kastellorizo.
