      One day in the Reformer's Club in London, in 1872, Phileas Fogg takes up a wager to journey round the world in 80 days. He is accompanied by his valet, Passepartout, and a detective named Fix, who has been assigned by the Reformer's Club to observe his movements. Showing fortitude and endless resourcefulness, Fogg and his companions narrowly escape from barbarians, hostile mobs and schemers during their journey. Does Fogg win the bet?
