Synopsis

Forrest Gump tells his remarkable life story to a stranger while waiting for a bus. Despite his sub-normal IQ, Gump leads a truly charmed life, with a ringside seat for many of the most memorable events of the second half of the 20th century. He taught Elvis Presley to dance, became a football star and met JFK and LBJ. He served with honor in Vietnam and spoke at an anti-war rally at the Washington Monument. He met Richard Nixon and later stumbled onto the break-in at the Watergate. He ran a successful shrimping business, was an original investor in Apple Computers, and ran back and forth across the country for several years. And all the time, he never forgot Jenny, who he loved as a boy, and made her own journey through the turbulent decade.
