Hushpuppy, an fearless six-year-old girl, lives with her father Wink in a southern Delta community at the edge of the world. Wink's tough love prepares her for the unravelling of the universe, for a time when he's no longer there to protect her. When nature flies out of whack an army of prehistoric creatures is unleashed. With the waters rising and Wink's health fading, Hushpuppy goes to search her lost mother.
