A retelling of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn that plays both with gender and the notion of adventure tales, Buy Me a Gun is set in the near-future of Mexico, where women are disappearing and children are being abducted with frightening impunity. A young girl named Huck wears a mask to hide her gender as she helps her dad, a tormented addict, take care of an abandoned baseball camp in service to a gang of narcos who use it for recreational purposes. With the help of her friends, a group of lost boys who have the power of camouflaging themselves in the windy desert, Huck has to fight to overcome her reality and to defeat the local capo. Buy Me a Gun creates a dark world where fear rules and violence is routine, all given a hallucinatory texture by director Julio Hernández Cordón’s famously stunning visual inventiveness.
