Harry Potter is more than just a book for children. It is a book for adults as well. And it is a cultural phenomenon. But it wasn’t always magical for Rowling.

In fact, she has had to fight her own battles, and struggle until she gained appreciation from her peers. This documentary shows the struggle Rowling had to endure to bring the beloved wizard fantasy of Harry Potter to life as a single mother on welfare.

Nowadays, she has sold more than 400 million copies of her books. The documentary also follows her first marriage, becoming a mother, her divorce, and the dark days of living on government assistance.

And if you thought Harry Potter was an instant success, you are wrong. Published after publisher passed on her first novel. It took a while for it to become an international best-seller.
