Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Director Joseph Meissner and writer Helem Krieger offer a vibrant glimpse at life in post-Katrina New Orleans as seen through the eyes of the people who call the city home. Matt Bergeron used to be a bohemian, but these days he's trying to launch an advertising business. His efforts are stifled, however, by the realization that advertising may not be his calling. Meanwhile, as a rift opens up between Matt and his free-spirited girlfriend, his fantasies about a voluptuous dental student offer a much-needed reprieve from his depressing reality. Meanwhile, emerging singer/songwriter Madeline Stein attempts to supplement her meager musician's income by selling real estate in the Lower 9th Ward, and develops an unlikely bond with an terminally-ill Creole squatter with a gift for growing potent marijuana. And as Madeline's lonely friend Georgia wrestles with the demands of being a single parent, her quest for love and financial security threatens to have devastating consequences for her precocious 12-year-old daughter Feliciana.
