15 MIN / NARRATIVE / 2012 / UK


Lou may have Down’s Syndrome but she is more than capable of looking after herself. Her older sister Ashley is sexy and feisty – she’s used to getting what she wants. Ashley and Lou live together and Ashley works to support them both. Because Ashley brings in the money, she thinks she can control Lou’s life. Lou keeps herself occupied in her own world, going on secret nights out dressed in Ashley’s clothes. She longs for independence from Ashley. When Lou meets Ashley’s new love interest, Ewan, everything changes for the sisters. Ewan and Lou get on well and she is attracted to him. Lou and Ashley begin to compete for his affections. When the three of them go on a day out together, frustrations reach a boiling point.
