Storyline

Beth and John, a married couple with a penchant for adoption, living in rural Washington state, take in Charlie and his eight year old granddaughter Bobbie, refugees from the destruction of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. But an extended storm sets in, and the newcomers become convinced that fate has it in for them. As a feverish illness strikes their guests, Beth's and John's fears of contagion cause them to panic. Their estranged, adopted daughter returns home to find that she may be the only one who can avert a very human disaster. Written by Anonymous

Wonderful Film
12 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very wonderfully acted film. Location almost gave it a feeling of watching a play. I laughed and was moved as well. Zach Horton, the director, did an excellent job and especially liked how he shot the ending, that was amazing.

I am a great fan of Charlie Robinson and Beth Grant and for me they can do no wrong.

Zach chose his actors well, for they all were good, including the minor roles. This film is a very unique concept and a well paced storytelling about a couple of survivors from Katrina and they people the other State they go for shelter and lodging and the people they encounter. I hope to view his other films as well for now I am quite curious about them.
