  • on 6 Dec 2012
  • Sewanee Union Theatre

This fantastical drama follows a little girl named Hushpuppy who lives in a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. When her father falls ill, Hushpuppy sets off to find her long-lost mother. Rated PG-13.
