PLAY TRAILER
Flutter
USA, 2014, 96 min., Color

Writer/Director Eric Hueber returns to the Dallas International Film Festival with FLUTTER, an epic southern fable.

Johnathan has nystagmus and severe narrow angle glaucoma. His eyes flutter. Aside from going blind, he is like any regular boy; he loves sea monsters and has a 300 lb. pet pig named Wee Wee.

JoLynn cares for Johnathan alone while her husband travels as a musician. To treat his eye condition, she’s come up with a creative secret: when her son suffered side effects using expensive pharmaceuticals, JoLynn instead grows medicinal marijuana that she cooks into brownies for his medicine. Realizing that her entire life has become dependent on two men, her husband and his father, JoLynn must decide how much she will sacrifice to save her son’s eyes and open her own.

FLUTTER is a story about the only true unconditional love between heaven and earth—that of a mother and child.
