FF ONE 5 Shells Screening
Timecode:NOLA and the RxSm Austin Film Fest has partnered up to trade our best films from each other's festival as well as our partner festivals around the world.
When their parents are brutally murdered by bandits, two young girls, Matti and Joslyn, are left completely alone in a world destroyed by a financial meltdown. With the weight of responsibility on her shoulders and a shotgun in hand, Matti decides they must find a new home.
Walking across a vast wasteland, far from the ruins of a society crumbled under the hubris of unchecked financial ringmasters, Matti becomes withdrawn, unable to deal with the tragedy of her loss. Yearning for some normalcy, Joslyn begs her sister to read to her from her favorite book, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." Where Joslyn needs the comfort found in the pages once read to her by her father, the imagery conjured up by the story begins to infect Matti's dreams.
Complicating matters are two nomads they come upon. Armed with a smile Frank, the elder of the two, puts Joslyn at ease, but in him Matti senses a core of menace. Tensions rise as Matti finds herself on the outside, leaving her life changed forever.
