Embedded with awesome fantasy and poignant reality, this semi-biographical saga revolves around a floundering writer, J.M. Barrie who desperately seeks creative inspiration.
It is then that he comes into contact with a family in dire straits that consists of a widow and her four children and develops a tremendously soulful connection with them. This magical saga touchingly traces the Scottish author's platonic relationship with Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, and his close friendship with her sons named George, Jack, Peter, and Michael, who inspire the classic play 'The Boy Who Never Grew Up'.
The movie intricately depicts how Barrie slowly bonds with four children, who have no father. Drawing from his time with the kids, he writes a story about children who don't want to grow up, which turns into a sublimely beautiful and universally appealing children's classic, 'Peter Pan'.
