Based on Mark Twain‘s bestselling novel.

Huck Finn sits prim and proper at the table with widow Douglas and Miss Watson every day, is served by the obedient house-slave Jim, goes to school and constantly to the church as well. After all, he and his best mate Tom Sawyer are wealthy boys since they found a treasure during their last adventure. What's wrong here? – Right, boys like Tom & Huck are definitely not prim and proper! Huck Finn loves nothing more than being outdoors in his rain barrel, catch fish and roast it on a stick over the campfire. Shoes, jackets, shirt collars – what's all that for? Every time possible they sneak away…but one day it's all over with the good village life.

Huck's boozy and greedy father shows up in St. Petersburg. And he's up to no good! The tramp and scallywag thinks that the prosperity of his son Huck belongs all to himself. Before the old man can do any mischief, Huck runs away and Jim joins him as he overhears that Miss Watson sold him to a slave trader.

On a self-made raft they start their exciting adventure down the dangerous river Mississippi all the way to Cairo and from there to Ohio, a country where slavery is forbidden and Jim can build up a life as a free man. At least that is the plan. Hunted by Huck's dad and three ruthless slave-hunters, Huck experiences his greatest and most dangerous adventure ever.
