After winning a trip to see the inside of a chocolate factory, a poor young boy named Charlie Bucket, is rewarded by eccentric candy-maker named Willy Wonka for having a kind heart.
Candy manufacturer Willy Wonka has a contest and hides five golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. All five ticket winners get a free tour of the mysterious Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of Wonka candy. Four of the children are nasty brats who are punished by Willie Wonka with various diabolical, but funny, methods. Only Charlie, a likeable child, wins the heart of the manufacturer.
