Batkid Begins takes audiences back to November 15th, 2013 - the day San Francisco became Gotham City and an intense outpouring of spontaneous support reverberated around the world. On one day, in one city, the world came together to grant one 5-year-old his wish. That little boy was Miles Scott, who is recovering from leukemia, and dreamed of becoming Batkid. A simple wish, which started with the Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation, grew into people around the world actively cheering Miles on including President Obama and on-screen superhereos. This wish and this little caped crusader resonated so deeply, filmmaker Dana Nachman was inspired to explore what happens when a small scale event aiming to fulfill one wish goes unintentionally viral, ultimately revealing surprising truths about what happens when someone inspires our society in a digital age.
