The Adventures of Huck Finn

Synopsis: Huckleberry Finn is a young boy in the 1840s, who runs away from home, and floats down the Mississippi River. He meets a run away slave named Jim and the two undertake a series of adventures based on the Picaresque novel by Mark Twain. As the story progresses the duo exploit an array of episodic enterprises, while Huckleberry slowly changes his views of bigotry. Along the way, Huck and Jim meet the King and Duke, who ultimately send the protagonists towards a different route on their journey. As Huck begins to have a change of heart, he gradually begins to distinguish between right and wrong, and conclusively, Huck is faced with the moral dilemma between the world's prejudice, of which he's grown up with, and the lessons Jim has taught him throughout the story about the evils of racism.

Hey, where is your fancy school clothes,

Huckleberry! What are these rags?

You played hooky, didn't ya?

No, ma'am.

I went to school.

And on my way home, I ran into a poor

mother with her ten poor children.

Last week that poor mother

only had eight children.

- Well, now she's got two more.

- Uh-huh.

- Anyways, I gave 'em my fancy clothes

to help 'em stay warm. - Hmm!

You sweet child!

I knew we could change him.

I just knew it.

- Why, he's downright chivalrous.

- Why, he's downright nauseous.

And for being so chivalrous, I'm going

to clean you up and dress you up...

and give you something to eat

before evening prayers.



- Shhh!

- Come on down, Huck.

Aw, hell.

I should've known better.

I should've finished packing and

ran away right then. But no,

I had to go sneak out and play

with my friends one last time.

Little did I know... that that one

mistake was gonna change my life forever.

- Goin' somewhere?

- Maybe I am, and maybe I ain't.

Don't you give me none of your lip!

I don't wanna wake

anybody up just yet.

But you move, and

I'll wail ya good.

Well, looks like you put on considerable

many frills since I've been away.

I hear ya can read and write.

Who told you to meddle in such

highfalutin foolishness anyhow?

The widow told me.

- I'll wail you good for meddlin'

in something like that!

Pretty soon you'll be taking up

religion like your ma did.

Would you leave Ma out of this?

She's dead and you better...

Don't you sass me,

or you'll be joinin' her!

Well, ain't you

the sweet-scented dandy!

With your polished clothes

and your nice bed.

I never seen such a son as you!

Well, I'm not gonna stand for it.

Leave me alone! Let me go!

- You're comin' with me!

- Let me go!

- Oh!


- Let me go! Let me go!
