Despite Forrest's (Tom Hanks) low IQ, he is not your average guy. Learning early on from his mother (Sally Field) that "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get", Gump, without trying, stumbles upon some exciting events. Meanwhile, as the remarkable parade of his life goes by, Forrest never forgets Jenny (Robin Wright), the girl he loved as a boy, who makes her own journey through the turbulence of the 1960s and 1970s that is far more troubled than the path Forrest happens upon.
