Gentleman adventurer Phileas Fogg sets out on a quest to travel around the world and back home in a period of 80 days.
Around the World in 80 Days opens in London in 1872. Phileas Fogg, a wealthy Englishman, bets that he can circle the globe in 80 days, after being mocked by one of his fellow members at the Reform Club that he would never be able to do such a thing, let alone leave London. The wager is for the sum of £20,000. Phileas, on his way home to prepare his journey immediately, hires a new valet, a Frenchman named Passepartout. He is followed on his journey circumnavigating the globe by young journalist Abigail Fix, the daughter of his friend Fortescue, a newspaper editor.
