Despite finding success and fame as a writer, James M. Barrie is dissatisfied with his work and his life. He returns to his hometown in Scotland to visit his mother, who still blames him for the long-ago death of his older brother in a skating pond. Hanuted by the tragic accident and his mother's harshwords, James slowly begins to confront his family's tragic past with the help of an unexpected friendship and his own gift for storytelling. This fictionalized account of the birth of Peter Pan will warm the hearts of audiences everywhere who remember the magic & mystery of The Boy Who WOuldn't Grow Up.
"Destined to become a classic" ... David S. Skipper, President of Anon; J.M. Barrie Society
