A nurse during World War II, Jenny Fields (Oscar nominee Glenn Close) conceives with a dying pilot and bears a boy named T.S. Garp (Robin Williams) whom she raises alone. When Garp grows up, he has some success writing fiction, but not nearly so much as his mother has with feminist-themed nonfiction. Despite tragedy in his life, he draws ever closer to the world of his mother, which includes her friend, transsexual football player Roberta Muldoon (Oscar nominee John Lithgow).
