The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: What happens when a baby, Benjamin Button, opens his eyes to the world as a 70-year-old old man? It is a disappointment and source of “embarrassment” for his parents. His father expects him to be a normal child, and ignores the fact that he is definitely an unusual case. He lives his life backwards and this is very difficult for Benjamin too. However, despite all the hard circumstances he has to live with, he falls in love, gets married, joins the army, has a son and lives his life fully until one day everything darkens for him.
