In the town of Waterton, signs of a circus are going up. Reports of a man-eating bear-like creature have prompted several hunters to buy some new bear traps. Meanwhile, at a country house, a group of boys are holding a meeting. Several are telling a story about a giant creature supposedly inhabiting the nearby Thunder Mountain, but the others don't believe them. Later that evening two of the boys, Tommy (Chance Michael Corbitt) and Ben (Ryan Todd) set out to find the mountain, but they get caught in a thunderstorm and barely escape getting hit by lightning (this is what gives Thunder Mountain its name). They take refuge inside a supposedly abandoned house. Whilst there, they find mysterious statues and paintings, one of which is in the shape of a bear and the other in the shape of a giant. Suddenly, the owner of the cottage returns. They boys try to hide from him but he flips open the table they are hiding under and they escape back into the woods. When they reach home, they tell their family their amazing story, but no one believes them. The next morning, they set out with another boy, Zeke MacGruder Daniel Pipoly) to go back to the cottage and find the answer to what the giant is. Their younger sister, Amy (Noley Thornton) follows them, but almost gets caught in a bear trap. The boys tell her to leave but she persists and continues following them.
