James Barrie is a successful playwright who lives a posh lifestyle with his wife. However, adulthood holds little charm for him, and he begins to spend most of his time with a poor widowed woman and her sons. Though his wife sees this as charity work, in truth, Barrie is much happier with them than at home, and as he spends time with the boys, his imagination runs wild. The more time he spends with them, the more people begin to wonder whether there might be something inappropriate to their relationship. The reality is that he merely is more comfortable reverting to his childhood, and this period of his life inspires his most famous work, "Peter Pan," about a flying boy who never grows up.
