Huckleberry

Directed By: Roger Hill | Runtime: 78 min | Plays In Short Block: None

Love triangles are dangerous, they typically end in pain … or conquest. A story spanning the year 1999 to 2000. Huckleberry 18, transgender-male, comes from a poor community in the Rust Belt. A region much maligned and challenging, and often misunderstood. Much like himself. Huckleberry pursues his unrequited love Jolene, adrift in an abusive relationship, in spite of her loathsome boyfriend, Clint. Rebuffed, Huckleberry confronts Clint once and for all, but not before unleashing hell upon him while still cloaked in the lingering shadow of his undiscovered intentions. Huckleberry’s actions impact those close to him including his best friends Will and Levon. While Will is supportive at all costs of his friend, Levon is left with lingering doubts as aspects of Huckleberry’s story, and the gossip of the townsfolk, don’t quite add up for him. In the end Huckleberry discovers consequence follows action, and violence begets violence, as he navigates a particularly intense year, and confronts the life-changing/threatening/affirming aftermath of his decisions.
