Synopsis[edit]

A young boy named Adam Harrison sets out on an epic and daring quest to uncover the mystery behind his long-lost dad, only to find out that he is none other than the legendary Bigfoot. He has been hiding deep in the forest for years to protect himself and his family from HairCo., a megacorporation run by Wallace Eastman who is eager to run scientific experiments with his special DNA. As father and son start making up for lost time after Adam's initial disbelief, the boy quickly discovers that he too is gifted with superpowers that are similar to his dad like having large feet (as expected from a Bigfoot), supersonic hearing, running at incredible speeds, and speaking to animals like Tina the Red Squirrel, Trapper the Raccoon, his wife Weecha, Wilbur the Kodiak Bear, and Steve the Woodpecker. But little do they know, Eastman is on their tail as Adam's traces have led them to Bigfoot.
