L'histoire se passe à Dublin, chez les trois demoiselles Morhan, en 1904. C'est le réveillon, toute la famille se réunit autour d'une dinde et de whiskeys. Le repas ne commence qu'après des danses familiales, un morceau de piano, une vieille chanson et une étrange histoire bien racontée. Au dîner, sous l'effet de la bonne nourriture et des alcools, les langues vont se délier et chacun pourra exprimer ses idées ou ses souvenirs. Un discours de Gabriel très émouvant aidera chacun à se révéler. Lors du départ, un air lointain fredonné provoquera une grande nostalgie chez Gretta qui évoquera à son mari, de retour chez eux, son amour de jeunesse. Des photos de paysages irlandais clôturent ce testament cinématographique de John Huston.

An American businessman, Jack Woods (Randy Quaid), ostensibly wants to spend a calm holiday in the sleepy Irish town Kerry and rents a cottage there. During a hike, he sees Irish beauty Kathleen Fitzpatrick (Orla Brady) swimming naked. Kathleen catches him and chases him off, but Jack is smitten with her beauty. That evening, Jack tries to drown his sorrows in Irish poitín, when he has an encounter with an invisible leprechaun. They struggle for the bottle of poitín, and Jack falls, knocking himself unconscious. The next morning, he sees the little man again and chases him to a nearby river, where the leprechaun falls in. Jack jumps in after him, saving his life (because water is the only thing that can kill the immortal leprechauns), then Seamus Muldoon (Colm Meaney), the saved leprechaun, becomes Jack's new friend. Seamus introduces Jack to his wife Mary (Zoë Wanamaker) and his son, Mickey (Daniel Betts), and shows him the mystical world of the leprechauns.

Le film commence durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, en 1941, quand Alan Alexander Milne – surnommé "Blue" par ses amis et sa famille – et sa femme, Daphne, reçoivent un télégramme chez eux. C'est à partir de ce moment que nous revenons quelques décennies en arrière, lorsque Blue est sur le front de la Bataille de la Somme. Ensuite, nous reprenons avec sa vie en Angleterre lorsque sa femme accouche de leur enfant et qu’il a un flash-back des souffrances et traumatismes vécus à la guerre. Daphne espérait une fille, et fut déçue d'avoir à la place un fils, qu'ils nommèrent Christopher Robin Milne, dit "Billy", et engagèrent une nourrice, Olive, qui eut pour tâche principale d’élever l’enfant.

In the 1830s, in the small Danish town of Odense, cobbler Hans Christian Andersen spends his day spinning fairy tales for the village children, teaching them lessons about pride, humility, love and growing up through his fanciful characters. One day, the stern schoolmaster, who believes Hans is wasting his pupils' precious time, implores the Burgomaster and councilmen to curtail the cobbler's habit of distracting the students with his storytelling, but even the adult citizens easily become a rapt audience for Hans' fables. Hans finally agrees to stop distracting the children and returns to his shop, where his teenage assistant, the orphan Peter, begs him to stop causing trouble. However, later that day Hans is drawn back to the schoolhouse to see the children. As he hears the schoolchildren drone mathematical phrases, he compares an inchworm's myopic measuring of beautiful blossoms to the schoolmaster's blindness to beauty and creativity. On yet another day, when the children do not arrive at the sound of the school bell, the schoolmaster deduces that Hans is again distracting his pupils. When the schoolmaster then demands that the Burgomaster and the councilmen choose between him and the cobbler, they decide that Hans must leave Odense. Peter, who has witnessed the verdict, returns to the shop and secretly tries to save his friend from the shame of being exiled by eagerly suggesting Hans travel to Copenhagen. After much prodding, Peter succeeds in convincing Hans to leave that afternoon by reminding him that he will be the envy of the town for having been the first to visit the famous city. Soon after Hans begins his journey, Peter joins him on the trail, bringing all the shop's tools to start their business anew.
