WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Three years after Hurricane Katrina, the unhealed wounds of New Orleans's Lower Ninth Ward continue to fester. In this powerful, funny, and deeply moving mother-daughter story, 14-year-old runaway Kali (Camille Spirlin of ABC's American Koko, Fox TV's Rosewood, and Nickelodeon's Marvin Marvin) embarks on a journey to pick through the wreckage of what used to be her life, rhyming, stealing, and scamming her way through the still-destroyed neighborhood. While the rest of the country's attention drifts, the community's residents are left to repair the damage from the inside out. As their attempts at renewal leave a path of destruction in their wake, Kali bears witness to what the floodwaters left behind.
