Apple and her dog Chico escape from a bad boyfriend and begin a fool’s journey in search of a new life.
She hits the trail with just her flute and plays it down the mountainside into the town of Buskerton. There Apple befriends a street busker and an eccentric Baroness.
Meanwhile, the ex-boyfriend hires a ruthless, blade-wielding Bounty Hunter to kill Apple and Chico.
Apple attempts to secure honest work at a diner, but the goofy, glue-sniffing owner thinks she’s all wrong for the job. She and the busker stumble upon a suitcase of goodies, and he helps her transform into a sharply-dressed little man who the diner boss hires on the spot. As they celebrate, the Bounty Hunter captures Chico.
Apple searches desperately for Chico as the Bounty Hunter searches for her. They stumble upon each other at the Villain’s hideout and a wild chase ensues.
‘Buskers Bounty’ is a story about the triumph of love and music over greed and selfish motivations. This silent comedy is told with original music, slapstick comedy, and beautiful cinematography.
