About the Film
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, this astonishingly powerful documentary takes you inside Hurricane Katrina in a way never before seen on screen. Tia Lessin and Carl Deal tell the story of an aspiring musician and her husband, trapped in New Orleans by deadly floodwaters, who survive the storm and then seize a chance for a new beginning.
Ebbs and flows like great drama. – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
