UNITED STATES | 115 minutes | 2017

A portrait of down-and-out America, a stone’s throw from the magic of Florida’s Disney World. Over one summer, the daily life of a six-year-old girl who lives hand to mouth with her mother in a community of long-term motel tenants. In this powerful neorealist fable, a skilful blend of childish zest for life and the tragic social reality of our times, Sean Baker continues to lay bare the underside of the American dream.
