جن بچوں کا تجسس والدین کے نظم و ضبط سے بچ جاتا ہے اور جو اڑنے سے پہلے ہی بڑے ہونے کا انتظام کرتے ہیں ، انہیں ییل فیکلٹی میں شامل ہونے کی دعوت دی جاتی ہے۔ یونیورسٹی میں ہی وہ اپنے سوالات پوچھتے ہیں اور جوابات ڈھونڈنے کی کوشش کرتے ہیں ... یہ وہ جگہ ہے جہاں تجسس کے خلاف دنیا کی دشمنی کا مقابلہ کیا جاسکتا ہے۔
