Description: While visiting his social club one evening, Victorian gentleman Phileas Fogg is drawn into a wager that it is impossible to travel around the world in eighty days. He is determined to prove his colleagues wrong and collect his £20,000. Accompanied by his faithful and resourceful manservant, Passepartout, Fogg leaves London that night and embarks upon an extraordinary adventure that includes saving a young Indian woman from being sacrificed on a funeral pyre and escaping an attack by Sioux warriors, all the while being dogged by a detective who mistakes Fogg for a bank robber. Will the travellers make it back to London in time to win the bet?
