Summary
"The day before [Hurricane Katrina] makes landfall, 24-year-old aspiring rap artist Kimberly Roberts turns a Hi-8 video camera on herself, her husband Scott, and their neighbors stranded in New Orleans. ... With no means to evacuate, she records their harrowing ordeal when the nearby levee fails and deadly floodwaters engulf their home and community. Directors/producers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal ... follow the couple's two-year journey as they face armed soldiers, bungling bureaucrats and an uncertain future"--Container
