Though trying to stay "respectable," Huckleberry Finn, runs into trouble when his father, Pap, returns to town. Huck is forced to fake his own death to escape and joins up with Jim, a slave in search of freedom. As they run away and head down river, they get sucked into scams involving two "aristocrats," one of which lands Jim in chains once again and Huck and Tom Sawyer join together to free him.
Based on Mark Twain's novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
