A post-apocalyptic western with Nerf guns.

Holdovers from an American civilization long gone hide out in a vast and strange landscape. Haunted by their past and horrified of the future, they are just trying to get through the day. Patti & The Kid is a quiet, eccentric and tender examination of fear —and the struggle to make space for something new.
