Peter Banning, who used to be Peter Pan (but grew up to be a lawyer because he left Never Land), now lives in London with his own family -- his wife Moira, and his two children, Jack and Maggie. One night they fly to London to visit Moira's grandmother, Wendy Darling, who helped Peter find a new family as an orphan. They visit her to attend a ceremony for the expansion of the old woman's orphanage. Captain Hook sneaks inside the house and kidnaps Peter's children. Now Peter has to rescue his children, but it will be difficult because he cannot remember anything in Never Land.
