The Odd Life of Timothy Green is about a couple named Jim and Cindy Green, played by Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Garner, that have tried to have a baby and are disappointed yet again after their last doctor visit. They go home and try to go on with life realizing they will never be parents. To cope they end up writing down what they envision their child to be like, and their hopes and dreams for their child. They put those in a box and bury it in the garden. In the night there is a thunderstorm and they awake to find a boy in their home that calls them Mom and Dad.
