Ups & Downs

Directed by Stuart Fryer
9 MIN / NARRATIVE / 2013 / UK



After a teenage house party goes too far, a bullied boy with Down’s syndrome is forced to take the reins and look after the bully: his brother.

Harry is about to have his 18th birthday. But he is ashamed and embarrassed by his older brother Josh. Josh has Down’s syndrome. Will Harry keep Josh locked away in his bedroom during his house party celebrations? A simple tale of the relationship between two brothers.

‘Ups & Downs’ makes strong points about inclusion, acceptance, and the hardships of a family dealing with Down’s syndrome.
