Set in The Bathtub - a defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world. Six-year-old Hushpuppy is devoted to her father, Wink, who frequently goes off on sprees, leaving Hushpuppy to fend for herself. The community is a resilient and joyous one, but there is a sense of inevitable destruction.

Little Hushpuppy has to find in herself the courage and heroism to survive the catastrophe and re-instil a sense of community.
