Based on a true story, the film follows world famous author J.K. Rowling on her inspirational journey to creating and writing HARRY POTTER.
Growing up in working class England, Rowling struggled between dreams of wanting to be an author and the harsh reality of finding a career that would keep her out of poverty. Despite constant obstacles, including her mother’s early death and a destructive marriage, Rowling never gave up hope of achieving her dream. Instead, she uses her past experiences – good and bad, as the inspiration that leads her to dream up the magical story of a young orphan on his way to wizard school…a story that would change the face of literature.
Incredibly, publisher after publisher passed on the book, leaving Rowling to squeak by a meagre life as a single mother on welfare. However, with the help of the one agent who believed in her talents, Rowling finally finds the success she long dreamed of reaching, leading her to become the household name that she is today.
