Three kids - Kenny, his sister Edith, and their friend Benji - are all but abandoned on a farm in remotest Middle America. With little adult supervision, they feed and care for each other, making up the rules as they go. But when Kenny's and Benji's relationship becomes more than friendship, and Edith shoots something she really shouldn't shoot, the formerly indifferent outside world comes crashing in whether they want it to or not. Tender, charming and full of heart, this coming of age story explores the gap between childhood and whatever comes next; forcing us to engage with what it means to remain young when exposed to the adult world far too quickly.
Please note that Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.
