A poetic and grimly compelling portrait of shattered lives in a fictional bayou where six-year-old Hushpuppy lives off the sodden land with her father Wink. He practices tough love so his little girl can survive the unforgiving elements but like all children, she rebels against his teachings. Magical realist flourishes, like a stampede of mythical creatures called aurochs, invite us to see this ramshackle world through Hushpuppy's eyes as the levees burst.
