As one of the most famous icons in the world, Michael Jackson represents many things for many people: a pop star, a benefactor, an idol. When in 1993 he was accused of sexual abuse of children, many found it hard to believe that 'the king of pop' could be guilty of such indescribable acts. In separate but parallel stories that echo each other, two children of 7 and 10 years old became friends with Jackson, who invited them to his unique and wonderful world in Neverland. Seduced by 'the fairy tale' that supposed to be close to the singer, the families of both children were not aware of the manipulation and abuse to which they would eventually submit. Through heartbreaking interviews with now-adult men and their families, "Leaving Neverland" offers a portrait of sustained exploitation and deception, documenting the power of celebrity that allowed a revered figure to enter the lives of these children and their loved ones.
