On the damper side of the Louisiana levees lies 'the Bathtub', a spit of land that is home to poor but carefree spirits like six-year-old Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis
) and her father Wink (Dwight Henry
). So when a storm threatens to flush them out, there ain't nobody gonna leave without a fight. Batten down for an elemental yet occasionally fantastical tale of resilience and defiance that swept the festival crowds off their feet.
