  • Charlie Gordon is a man with an intellectual disability. He is being taught new things to help grow his knowledge by a woman he calls Miss Kinnian.
  • After praying and pleading to be smart for an extended amount of time, he has the chance to. He is being used for a surgery that will make him intelligent.
  • After receiving the surgery, Charlie's knowledge is growing on his own. He is slowly, but surely, getting smarter. However, this raises brows for his co-workers at Donnegan's plastic box factory. He is fired.
  • After knowing what it feels like to be smart, Charlie's intelligence decreases and he falls into a state of depression where he's had enough and doesn't want to be smart anymore.
  • Now that his intelligence from the surgery is gone, Charlie has gone back to working at Donnegan's plastic box factory. His friends treat him well, and stick up for him if anyone tries to mess with him.
  • Finally, Charlie decides he does not want to witness his peers feeling sorry for him that he's not intelligent anymore. His plan is to get out of New York, and go to a place where no one knows that Charlie Gordon used to be an intelligent man.
