This tells the story of how Walt Disney was able to turn the fictional character Mary Poppins into a successful movie. Mr. Disney had made a promise to his young daughters that he would make Mary Poppins, their favorite character, into a movie. But the character's creator, author P.L. Travers, does not give her permission to put Mary Poppins on the big screen, and is adamant about not allowing it to happen. Mr. Disney, not wanting to disappoint his daughters, persists in his requests, attempting to convince Ms. Travers to change her mind.

Many years later, Ms. Travers falls on hard times as her book sales begin to dwindle and her finances weaken. She contacts Mr. Banks to discuss the possibility of making a movie out of Mary Poppins, but is still resistant to the idea. Mr. Banks, having remembered something from both his own childhood and certain events in the younger years of Ms. Travers, diligently works at convincing Ms. Travers that the movie idea is the best thing for them both.
