explores the formative years of the renowned author’s life as he finds
friendship, courage and inspiration among a fellow group of writers and artists
at school. Their brotherhood strengthens as they grow up and weather love and
loss together, including Tolkien’s tumultuous courtship of his beloved Edith
Bratt, until the outbreak of the First World War which threatens to tear their
fellowship apart. All of these experiences would later inspire Tolkien to write
his famous Middle-earth novels.
