Plot Synopsis

Based on the 1726 novel by Jonathan Swift. Returning home to England after eight years, physician Lemuel Gulliver recounts his tale of being shipwrecked and his adventures among the tiny, belligerent Liliputians; the giant Brobdingnagians; the brainy Laputans and the civilized society of horses. Deemed to be crazy by friends and family, he is thrown into a madhouse, where he is kept drugged and delirious by a devious doctor out to steal his home and wed his wife. When his spouse and son discover the chicanery, they demand to be permitted to nurse Gulliver back to health.
