In August 2005, the American city of New Orleans was struck by the powerful Hurricane Katrina. Although the storm was damaging by itself, that was not the true disaster. That happened when the city's flooding safeguards like levees failed and put most of the city, which is largely below sea level, underwater. This film covers that disastrous series of events that devastated the city and its people. Furthermore, the gross incompetence of the various governments and the powerful from the local to the federal level is examined to show how the poor and underprivileged of New Orleans were mistreated in this grand calamity and still ignored today.

Thank you for the documentary we really needed it. So many of us were so misinformed. Thank You so much NOLA citizens for your honesty and courage to tell the truth and let America know that this was not just about African Americans; it was about Americans. The media was so awful; Refugees. We are American citizens. Why did we get so self centered and not allow other countries to assist us; we always run to other countries aide. Where are we right now. How many service members live in NOLA? Why no one was allowed to assist us? I am so upset and disappointed. I have been in Mortgage Banking industry over 20 yrs and the scam that the hazard insurance companies and mortgage companies are pulling is just a crock of crap. I just so sick!!!!!!! I donot want to even tell people in my travels that I am from America.
