Tolkien explores the early years of the famous author’s life as he finds his own fellowship among his peers at school. Friendship and courage grows among his fellow creative lads at school. This brotherhood grows as they withstand love and loss until the outbreak of the First World War which threatens to tear their fellowship apart. These formative experiences would later inspire Tolkien to create the stories that became The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
