The Florida Project tells the story of Moonee, a precocious six-year- old and her ragtag group of friends. The children’s summer break is filled with wonder, mischief and adventure while the adults around them struggle with hard times.
Throughout the United States, budget motels have become a last refuge for people who have found themselves unable to secure a permanent residence. A growing “hidden homeless” population, 41% of which is composed of families, struggles week to week in order to keep a roof over their heads.
Along the main highway just outside Orlando, that runs through the land of theme parks and resorts, budget motels that once attracted tourists with the Disney mystique, now house homeless families. Moonee and her twenty-two year old mother, Halley, live at one such establishment — The Magic Castle Motel. The closest thing Moonee has to a father is Bobby, the motel’s manager, a guarded and diligent man who is taunted by the children’s antics, but who has a soft spot for his residents.
Halley has lost her job and a new girl the same age as Moonee has moved in at the motel next door – it’s going to be an eventful summer.
