Synopsis

In a timeless México where women are disappearing, a girl called Huck wears a mask to hide her gender. She helps her dad, a tormented addict, who tries to protect her as he can. With the help of her friends, a group of lost boys, she has to fight to overcome her reality and defeat the local capo.

Our take

Evoking Huckleberry Finn in its fantastical satirization of contemporaneous anxieties, Buy Me a Gun imagines an odyssey of girlhood under an extreme patriarchy. Set within a dystopian Mexico born from present sociopolitical distress, this is an imperative, renewing and enchanting riposte to reality.
