Actors Mia Farrow and Tom Courtenay narrate this sympathetic 1979 profile of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a Victorian-era mathematician who published his psychologically complex children's tale Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, under the nom de plume Lewis Carroll. Highlights include quotations from the author's diary and private letters, as well as photographs he took of Alice Liddell, the little girl for whom he wrote the initial book.
