Cindy and Jim had been trying to have a child for a long time. after receiving a final conclusion from their fertility doctor, they decided to bury their dreams by writing out all the great traits their child would have and placing them into a box in the garden. that night, while they were deep asleep in bed, a child came running into their house. they awoke to found Timothy, a boy who had leaves growing from his legs. Cindy and Jim were thrown into parenthood overnight and developed feelings for Timothy.
like how most Disney movies went, it involved at least a little tears. from their desperation to their joy and struggle, every moment was engaging. even though the separation was well expected, we were pleased to find it redeeming itself nonetheless, leaving behind a happier ending. with Timothy being very well-played, it was difficult not to fall in love with his character. despite the secretive side of his that he found quite difficult to handle, or the innocence side of his that was frustrating to watch, the wait became worthwhile every now and then.
