Description

“I am – we are, finally – neither from here nor there, from then or now.” In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, reporter Kassandra Dupris is taken hostage by a white supremacist group. As the floodwaters rise, reports of rescued puppies compete with underreported stories of loss and devastation. A door opens, and time and place shift between Hurricane Katrina 2005 and the Great Mississippi Floods of 1927.
