18-year old Star (Sasha Lane) had a troubled upbringing and lives on the edge of society. When she meets Jake (Shia LaBeouf), she is at once fascinated. He roams around with his crew of door-to-door salesmen semi-legally selling magazine subscriptions and invites Star to join them. In the evening, they party excessively. But this apparently limitless freedom is deceptive: there is a strict regime. If you don't sell enough, you get punished. in term of tricks, anything goes.  American Honey is a road trip to the heart of America and the portrait of a wild, young love affair which won the Jury Prize at Cannes.
