10-year old Annie roams her Texas hometown on her BMX. Friendless and virtually parentless, her daily routine is filled with self-imposed antics and general mischief. The usual prank phone calling, biscuit dough hurling, and general destruction is interrupted when she comes across a well in the woods and a voice coming from below.

 In typical Zellner Brothers fashion, Kid-Thing is funny, smart, perfectly odd, and innocently cruel. The film truly captures the majestic world of adolescence and vividly reflects the strange snickelway between frustrated restlessness and true careless independence; a phenomenon that usually only exists in the world of a pre-teen. Once again the Zellners have delivered one of the most interesting and unique films at the festival. Kid-Thing premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and subsequently screened at the South by Southwest, Edinburgh, and Berlin Film Festivals.
