Beasts Of The Southern Wild
In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, 6-year-old Hushpuppy exists on the brink of orphan-hood. Her mother long gone, and her beloved father Wink a wild man on a perpetual spree, Hushpuppy is left to her own devices on an isolated compound filled with semi-feral animals. She perceives the natural world to be a fragile web of living, breathing, squirting things, in which the entire universe depends on everything fitting together just right. So when a 100 year storm raises the waters around her town, her daddy is suddenly stricken with illness, and fierce pre-historic creatures awaken from their frozen graves to come charging across the planet, Hushpuppy sees the natural order of everything she holds dear collapsing around her. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must survive an unstoppable catastrophe of epic proportions.
