In the poverty-stricken outskirts of Orlando – just out of sight of Disney World – are 22-year-old mum Halley and her six-year-old daughter Moonee, living in a garish roadside motel. Moonee is a force of nature, and her adventures with friends and family are irrepressible, roaming around the grounds with a carefree childhood innocence. Meanwhile, the equally rebellious Halley – though barely an adult herself – does everything within her power to provide for her family amidst difficult circumstances. Continuing with the bubblegum aesthetic found in his acclaimed debut feature ‘Tangerine’, Sean Baker’s follow up is an equally vibrant offering which finds a balance between reality and escapism on the fringes of American suburbia.
