A dockworker's son, smitten by escapologist Harry Houdini, dreams of a life of magic. His parents struggle with their son’s eccentricity, but he doggedly trains himself to emulate his hero. His relentless ambition finally brings him face-to-face with the world’s greatest showman – and one of the most terrifying events in British industrial history.

Directed by Josh Richards and an Edinburgh sellout, this multi-award-winning modern fairy-tale set in Edwardian South Wales is an enchanting story that blends childhood imagination with the cynicism of adulthood in a tale of hope, determination and magic.
