Nick reluctantly joins a group of thieves.  He is alone and cold and hungry and Finch, the head of the group, offers friendship and food in exchange for Nick working with the guys.  When Finch tells him the plan, Nick thinks this is crazy.  Finch believes the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and thinks he has found Jack's house.  He plans to have Nick climb into the window and then open the door for the rest of the thieves.  Well, it turns out that maybe there was some truth to the tale and Nick finds himself repeating some of the mistakes from the past.
