Wendy Darling endures the restricted life of a child born to a well-to-do Edwardian family. Confined to the nursery upstairs, she must protect her brothers from their cruel nanny. The glamour of her parents' parties downstairs calls to her and, risking punishment, she spies on grown-up life at night through the banisters. What she sees will change her life forever. The world beyond the nursery is haunted by secrets and passions that Wendy just can't fathom. Driven by her precocious imagination, she sets out on a series of adventures to put the world about her to rights.
