THE GOOD: Faced with the very real heartache of learning that they cannot conceive a child, Cindy and Jim Green (played respectively by Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), decide that they will sit down and make a list of all the things the child they had dreamed of MIGHT have been, as a form of closure.

But that night a strange storm passe...
