Scale-Model Sadness


Jeannot has Down Syndrome. His parents dress him as an adult because he’s 25 but treat him like a child so they can keeps being parents. Sheltered with them in suburban comfort, Jeannot collects dinky toys and watches the frogs that hang out around the pool. His life, regular as clockwork and free of responsibility, is turned upside down by the maid, whom the parents have recently hired and who makes Jeannot take intiative. The domino effect of Jeannot’s awakening has repercussions on the entire family.
