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.
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.
