A provocative Southern tale set in rural Alabama in the late 1950s, Hounddog is the story of a spirited young girl, Lewellen (Dakota Fanning) and her struggle to rise above the repression that surrounds her.

Lewellen lives with her stern grandmother, Grammie (Piper Laurie), but spend most of her time with her much-adored Daddy (David Morse) in his dilapidated shack. Daddy's wild side is tempered by his beautiful but troubled girlfriend, Ellen (Robin Wright Penn) who has a mysterious history but calming influence on the lonely, young girl. Lewellen is deeply talented and finds comfort and safety, as well as a place to put her hurt and rage, in the music of Elvis Presley. When Elvis Presley comes to town for a concert, Lewellen falls into a compromising situations that steals her innocence and leaves her feeling even more alone and hopeless.

It is up to the caretaker, Charles (Afemo Omilanmi) to help Lewellen overcome the wounding of her sprit and save her soul. He teaches her to use The Blues to turn her tragedy into a gift... bringing light out of darkness and hope out of adversity.
