Synopsis

“A precocious and arresting neo-realist fable.” -IndieWire

A startling vision of a cartel-run dystopia, Cordón’s loose adaptation of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn centers on Huck, the resilient pre-teen daughter of a drug addict under the thumb of a cruel gang boss. In a world where children are taken from their families and women are mysteriously absent, Huck disguises herself as a boy to remain safe. Huck’s irrepressible spirit stands in stark contrast to the world she lives in, an unspecified grim future that feels all too current.
