This documentary draws viewers into the painful and uplifting story of one post-Katrina African-American/Creole family and the bayou culture they cannot give up, despite the odds. Can life as they knew it survive one the worst disasters in U.S. history? The unusual size and interconnectedness of this 155-member family seem to promise hope. Surviving through large, deeply rooted families has always been a cultural truth in the New Orleans area. As the story of their evacuation to Dallas gives way to the story of their return to their small bayou community, unexpected difficulties compromise the experience of home as they knew it.
