During the next months, the child-like Barrie plays with the boys daily, and their imaginative games give him ideas for a play. Simultaneously, a friendship deepens with Sylvia, the lads' mother, to the chagrin of his wife Mary, with whom he spends little time (separate bedrooms), the widow's mother, and high society, which gossips about his attraction to the widow and to her sons. As Sylvia's health worsens, Barrie's ties to the boys strengthen and he must find a way to take his muse to Neverland

Searching for the source of the voice, he turns to literary theory-spewing professor Jules Hilburt, who eventually discovers that talented but troubled novelist Karen Eiffel is writing Harold--he is the central character of her new novel, "Death and Taxes."

Trama: James M Barrie è un giovane ed eccentrico drammaturgo in crisi di ispirazione e in crisi matrimoniale. Passa le giornate al parco, insieme al suo cane, cercando di scrivere una piéce che possa far dimenticare il suo ultimo flop teatrale. Un giorno, complice l'esuberanza del cucciolo, James conosce la chiassosa famiglia Llewelyn Davies, composta dalla bella e giovane madre Sylvia e dai suoi quattro figli, Jack, George, il piccolo Micheal e Peter, il più schivo dei quattro. Sylvia è una giovane vedova (il marito è morto di tumore), in difficoltà finanziarie, nonostante faccia parte di una ricca casata inglese, e a disagio nel gestire, da sola, quattro figli maschi. Per James, così, diventa relativamente semplice conquistare, con buffonerie, racconti, fantasie e giochi sempre nuovi, i quattro ragazzi, compreso Peter (ancora scosso dalla perdita del padre e troppo riflessivo per la sua tenera età) diventando un punto di riferimento imprescindibile per la famiglia. In questo modo il drammaturgo sublima i propri problemi matrimoniali, trova una compagna con cui condividere le proprie fantasie più incredibili (senza che con Sylvia nasca una vera storia d'amore) e scopre di avere sotto gli occhi un ottimo "materiale umano" per trarre nuove ispirazioni: le gesta dei quattro ragazzini, i loro giochi, la loro "matura" voglia di divertirsi, trovano ben presto spazio tra le pagine della sua nuova rappresentazione teatrale, intitolata Peter Pan. Mentre l'"Isola che non c'è" prende forma sulla carta e poi nelle scenografie del teatro, il matrimonio di James si sfalda irrimediabilmente e la famiglia Llewelyn Davies vive l'ennesima tragedia: anche Sylvia è malata di tumore e presto morirà. La prima di Peter Pan ottiene uno strabiliante successo, ma per James il pensiero e le attenzioni non possono che essere rivolte alla sua amica che sta per scomparire e ai suoi figli che hanno sempre più bisogno di lui
