His much-loved teddy bear and chums from childhood are left behind as he tends to his wife, Evelyn, played by Hayley Atwell, his daughter, Madeline, played by Bronte Carmichael and his professional life. As the film begins, Robin is overworked and underappreciated, missing appointments and neglecting his family in order to please his boss.

Once they have found themselves walking along the countryside, interacting with the locals and visiting extraordinary places like a carnival park that has a theme of the Hundred Acre Wood, Robin begins to regain some of the joy and imagination he had lost as an adult.
