On the morning of August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina barreled into New Orleans, devastating many of the city's neighborhoods. Pierce and his family were able to ride out the storm at a relative's house miles away; when they were finally allowed to return, they found their family home in tatters, their neighborhood decimated. Heartbroken but resilient, Pierce vowed to help rebuild, and not just his family's home, but all of Pontchartrain Park. His narrative brings together the stories of his family, his city, and his history; why they are all worth saving; and the critical importance art played in reuniting and revitalizing this unique American city.
"From acclaimed actor and producer Wendell Pierce, an insightful and poignant portrait of family, New Orleans and the transforming power of art"--
