WHAT HAPPENED to Peter Pan when he finally grew up? He found a wife, had a child, got a job and a mortgage, and became no craic at all. And then along comes Captain Hook, who threatens to take his daughter away....
Bad enough Peter is going through a mid-life crisis, without his arch enemy re-appearing on the scene to threaten his family. What will Peter do? Will he get his lust for life back and prevent Captain Hook from taking his daughter?
