“You know why I like to teach children, Jack? So I don't get so wrapped up in being an adult. So I can remember there are other things that are important in life, like riding a bike, playing in a treehouse, splashing in water with your good shoes on.”
Plot – Jack Powell isn't a child like the others. Because of an extremely rare genetic disorder that accelerates growth and physical development abnormally, the ten-year-old Jack has the appearance of a man in his forties. His mother Karen and his father Brian try in every way to keep him away from the dangers of the outside world, entrusting Jack to a tutor, but the boy needs to know the world around him with his own eyes.
