Storyboard Text

  • In Tucson Arizona, when Jeanette is 4, she catches herself on fire while cooking hotdogs and it leaves permanent scars on her stomach.
  • Rex always told their family that their future depended on building the glass castle, their "dream home." But that dream never came true.
  • While the Walls family was on their way to another town, Jeanette fell out of the car and the parents didn't even notice until hours later.
  • While they were living with Rex's parents in Welch, Erma, Rex's grandma, was sexually abusive towards the children. Rex even defended her actions.
  • Don't touch me!
  • Eventually, the Walls moved into their own run-down house in Welch. It was terrible living conditions and the some of the worse years of their lives.
  • Jeanette tries saving up money from working, but Rex always asks for money and eventually even takes what she's saved up and spends it on alcohol.
