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 vécu 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 principal d’élever l’enfant.
