This piece shows a mother who sees her young adult son as if he were still a little boy while she’s helping him to choose his kitchen in an IKEA store. The reality is that she cannot keep him a boy forever--but at least the prices at IKEA stay small year ‘round.

Didier Barcelo of production company Henry directed “My Son” for French agency Buzzman.
