The Plot:
 
Beasts of the Southern Wild is set in a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee where a six-year-old girl Hushpuppy (Best Actress Nominee Quvenzhane Wallis) 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.
