A Regular Little Houdini

Newport, South Wales: A tenacious young dockworker's son, smitten by Harry Houdini’s amazements, dreams of a life of magic – to "escape" a suffocating, impoverished future and unlock his shackles; the brutal Welsh working-class reality of Edwardian Britain. With his head full of folly, his parents struggle with their son’s eccentricity, but, he doggedly trains himself to emulate his hero on the industrial detritus in the bustling docks, and his relentless ambition finally brings him face-to-face with the world’s greatest showman - along with one of the most terrifying events in British industrial history.

Is it possible to follow one’s dreams in a world where poverty weighs you down like mud?

An enchanting story that blurs the lines between childhood imagination and the cynicism of adulthood. An extraordinary tale of hope, determination & magic!
