A man with a low IQ has accomplished great things in his life and been present during significant historic events - in each case, far exceeding what anyone imagined he could do. Yet, despite all the things he has attained, his one true love eludes him. 'Forrest Gump' is the story of a man who rose above his challenges, and who proved that determination, courage, and love are more important than ability.
The film follows Forrest from his childhood, that he spent in leg braces, to football hero, to military hero, to Olympic champion ping pong player, and independently wealthy business owner.
