Two brothers are victimized by a weak and jealous man in this drama shot on location in Louisiana. Beaux Dupuis ( Jonathan Schaech ) lives on a houseboat with his brother Pemon ( Fred Koehler ) in the swamps of Cajun country. Beaux is a handsome and responsible man who supports his family by running a bait shop and looks after Pemon , who is mentally handicapped. Beaux used to love Mary-Louise ( Tamara Braun ), a dark-eyed beauty, but she's recently married local ne'er do well Carl Lebauve ( Jeremy Davidson ), who has a mean streak and a jealous nature. As it happens, Carl has reason to suspect Mary-Louise -- she still stops by the Dupuis home occasionally to bring snacks for Pemon , and is sometimes tempted into infidelity by Beaux . Carl 's father is the local sheriff, and when he's killed in the line of duty, his son takes his place; it isn't long before Carl learns Mary-Louise has been having an affair with Beaux , and he uses his new authority to put Pemon behind bars on false change as a way of punishing his big brother. Little Chenier was directed by actress and filmmaker Bethany Ashton Wolf , who co-wrote the screenplay with Jace Johnson , whose short story provided the basis for the story. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
