Mud is a contemporary 'fairytale', about two fourteen year old boys who find an ex-convict named 'Mud' (Matthew McConaughey) hiding out on an island in the middle of the Mississippi River. The bored Arkansas teenagers, Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland), decide to help the hideaway reunite with his girlfriend Juniper (Reese Witherspoon).
