Synopsis

Dreams come true in the most magical way in this heart-tugging fantasy about hope, love and family. Set in small town America, it sees infertile couple Cindy and Jim Green compile a description of what their perfect child would be like — if they could have one — and bury it in the garden. That night something astonishing happens: a boy emerges from the soil, with leaves sprouting from his ankles. Realizing he's their wishes made flesh, Cindy and Jim take in the unusual 10-year-old and start raising him as their son. Soon young Timothy is changing the lives of everybody he meets, teaching both his adoptive parents and the curious locals essential lessons for the future.
