Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

You've read the book and seen the film, now explore the origins of famed author C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe in this documentary chronicling the mild-mannered Oxford University professor's quest to create a timeless tale of wonder and fantasy that would be passed down through the generations. From the discouraging initial words of Lewis' friend J.R.R. Tolkien to the wildfire success of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe upon its publication, this is the tale of a children's classic in the making, and the man whose unwavering vision eventually lead him to worldwide acclaim.
