A couple of young kids living in Los Angeles decide that they want to see “the river.” Setting out alone, their encounters along the way provide the heart and soul of the movie.
LITTLE FEET is not a film just about children, it is a film whose light is the light of childhood. In the opening moments, we see seven-year old Lana watching after her four-year old brother. The children laugh and play, while Lana improvises the role of caretaker. They live out of sight from the adult world. When Lana puts their weary father to bed we see in her stoic and sad eyes the profound sadness of a lonely child who is being asked to grow up too soon.
And thus begins the strange and beautiful adventure that is LITTLE FEET.
