With a swinging cane, an unmistakable brown top hat, and a velvet long coat, everybody knows Willy Wonka.

Questing for a purpose with no earthly way of knowing in which direction he is going, Wonka must learn to trust himself and those around him in order to thrive. Peculiar as he is, the young man attracts all manner of strange things to him. Traveling through unknown worlds, he meets his companions, the Oompa-Loompas, for the first time. Their meeting will change his fate forever and challenge the young chocolatier to meet his fate head-on and become the tinkering artist in a factory of dreams.
