Aspiring artist Mark Hogancamp, played by Steve Carell, became a victim of a violent assault when five men beat him up & left him for dead. Due to brain damage inflicted by his attackers, Hogancamp was left with little to no memory of the 38 prior years of his life, including his ex-wife, family, artistic talents & military service. In an attempt to regain his memories, he meticulously constructs a miniature fantasy world in his yard & discovers how artistic imagination can restore the human spirit. The film also stars Leslie Mann, Diane Kruger & Janelle Mon e & is directed by Academy Award winner Robert Zemeckis.
