In August 2005, elderly Daisy Fuller is on her deathbed in a New Orleans hospital as Hurricane Katrina approaches. She tells her daughter Caroline, about blind clockmaker Mr. Gateau, hired to make a clock for a train station in 1918. When it was unveiled, the public was surprised to see it running backwards. Mr. Gateau made it that way as a memorial, so that the children they lost in World War I, including his own son, could come home again and live full lives. He was never seen again. Daisy then asks Caroline to read aloud from Benjamin Button’s diary.

On the evening of November 11, 1918, a boy is born with the appearance and maladies of an elderly man. His mother, Caroline, dies during childbirth and the father, Thomas Button, abandons the infant on the porch of a nursing home. Queenie and Mr. “Tizzy” Weathers find the baby, and she raises him as her own, naming him Benjamin. Benjamin learns to walk in 1925, using crutches in place of a wheelchair. On Thanksgiving 1930, Benjamin meets seven-year-old Daisy, whose grandmother lives in the nursing home and they connect instantly. Later, he accepts work on a tugboat captained by Mike Clark. Benjamin also meets Thomas, without knowing he is his father. In autumn 1936, Benjamin leaves New Orleans for a long-term work engagement with the tugboat crew; Daisy later is accepted into a dance company in New York City under choreographer George Balanchine.
