In November of 2013, an outpouring of love descended on San Francisco in an effort to fulfill the wish of Miles Scott, a 5-year-old Leukemia patient. His dream: to become Batman and save Gotham City.

Batkid Begins gives a behind-the-scenes look at how a small wish from a 5-year old turns into a major event and production.The Make-A-Wish Foundation’s initial plan was so well received that it went viral online and grew exponentially. Responses went from hundreds to thousands overnight and suddenly the organization wondered if the event could spiral out of control.

Mile’s wish came true, and Batkid inspired millions around the world. Batkid Begins will raise your spirits and challenge you to save the world, too.
