Hushpuppy, a fearless six-year-old girl, lives with her father, Wink, in 'the Bathtub', a remote southern bayou community. More often than not, Hushpuppy is left to her own devices on their isolated compound. She perceives the natural world to be a magical place, a fragile web in which the entire universe depends on everything fitting together just right.
Hushpuppy's reality is shattered when her father is struck down by a mystery illness and 'the Bathtub' is devastated by a massive hurricane. Hushpuppy must courageously journey to the outside world to find help for her ailing father before it is too late.
A beautifully uplifting and inspiring film about the power of the human spirit, Beasts Of The Southern Wild is a magical experience that proves no person is too small, no challenge is too big and no journey is too perilous when a loved one's life is at risk.
