C.S. Lewis - The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe

In The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis created a fantastical world - called Narnia - which humans enter through a wardrobe in a professor's home.  The Pevensie children (Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter) are staying with the professor after leaving London, for the safety of the countryside, during the Blitz. 

While playing "hide and seek" with her siblings, Lucy (the youngest child) unexpectedly finds the magical land - Narnia - after hiding in the professor's upstairs wardrobe. 

This scene, from the live-action film (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) released in 2005 (and based on Lewis' book of the same name), interprets that part of the story.
