SYNOPSIS: A Fun Frolic. A Fantastic Update of the Visionary classic. To win a bet, Phileas Fogg and his acrobatic sidekick Passepartout must circle the globe and return to London inside of 80 days. Unknowingly pursued by a tireless detective convinced Fogg is a robber on the run, the fast-minded, fleet-footed pair traverse 4 continents and 3 oceans in a while-knuckled sprint. Phileas Fogg is the Victorian action hero.
