Last year, Miles Scott warmed our hearts and fulfilled his fantasy of conquering evil and saving Gotham City, all before dinner time.

The five-year-old leukemia survivor became Batkid for a day when the city of San Francisco was transformed into Gotham City, complete with bad guys like the Penguin and Riddler.

The world watched as Miles’ dream came to life with the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and he heroically rescued citizens from villains. He even got shout-outs from Barack Obama and upcoming Batman, Ben Affleck.

Now you can sneak a peek behind the scenes of this kid's mind-blowing day.

Filmmaker Dana Nachman and KTF Films are wrapping up a documentary on how Miles’ amazingly complex dream came to life.

Batkid Begins shows the countless actors and the training and co-ordination that took went into creating the perfect, action-packed day.

"Our film also shows you the boy behind the mask," a statement on the filmmaker's fundraising site says.

The filmmaker released the trailer and is hoping to raise $100,000 to complete the movie. As of Tuesday morning it was about halfway to that goal.​
