In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. 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. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..sort of film that thrives on creative extravagance. Every frame buzzes with the desire to amaze, dazzle and excite..”
by Donald Clarke [Irish Times]
“..honors the Gulf Coast in the most appropriate way possible: by inventing a ferocious cinematic patois that, as the storm rises, rages right back..”
by Ray Greene [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..a masterful example of that trickiest of storytelling feats..”
by Robert Levin [The Atlantic]
