Peter Hedges ("What's Eating Gilbert Grape?") tells the tale of a happy couple (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton) who dreams of having a child. On one stormy night, a young boy shows up on their doorstep but it turns out that the child (CJ Adams) is not like other boys. For one, he has leaves sprouting from his legs.
The exclusive clip, which you can watch above, shows Garner and Adams getting ready to meet other children who may not understand Timothy's special gifts.
Take a look at the clip above; "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" hits theaters August 15.
