As Edward Bloom, spinner of tall tales, lays dying, his estranged son, William, comes home in hopes of uncovering the truth behind his father's stories. Through a series of fantastic tales, Edward recounts his life. What William discovers is that sometimes, the truth in stories is of more value than the recounting of mere historical facts. And that knowing your own end can give you the courage to truly live.
