Check out the synopsis below:
A modern-day fairy tale created by The Zellner Brothers. Kid Thing is the story of Annie, a rebellious ten-year-old girl that lives on the outskirts of town with her father Marvin, who, when not herding goats, mostly sleeps the day away. Virtually devoid of parental guidance, she is left to fend for herself and do as she pleases. With no moral compass, she roams the neighboring lands, shoplifting and engaging in destructive behavior. Her routine is broken one day while playing in the woods; she hears a voice calling from deep within an abandoned well, asking for help. Scared and untrusting of the unseen stranger, Annie deliberates on her course of action.
