The intriguingly beautiful trailer for the highly anticipated Beasts of the Southern Wildhas emerged online today.

Directed by Benh Zeitlin, the film centers around a young girl (Quvenzhané Wallis) being raised by a single father (Dwight Henry) in the outskirts of society. Devastating environmental events unearth prehistoric beasts while her father’s health deteriorates. With her perfect world in jeopardy, the girl sets out on a journey to find her mother.

Synopsis:

In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.

Beasts of the Southern Wild is scheduled to hit theaters on June 27th.
