Field of nightmares

In a future Mexico where the cartels control everything – absolutely everything – baseball field caretaker Rogelio and his young daughter Huck struggle to stay alive and keep their humanity. In a world where the population is dwindling due to the lack of women, Huck pretends to be a boy in order to stay with her father – but as she grows older, it’s only a matter of time before the cartels learn the truth. Mixing elements of MAD MAX, HELI and BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, BUY ME A GUN is a smart, depressingly relevant and disturbingly realistic dystopia.

BUY ME A GUN is in our main competition programme for international fiction, Cinema Extraordinaire.
