This verite digital video about coping with natural disaster contains exotic characters, tragic hardships, bureaucratic indifference, inner demons and the birth of a crack baby.

Ashley Sabin and David Redmon's gently observational videography and editing let the story emerge without any controlling structure or narration...

The film is ungainly and lacks for focus, not unlike its subjects, but it has a heart as big as the Mississippi and believes in the future of New Orleans and its people.

A worthy addition to the steadily increasing array of docs about life and strife in post-Katrina New Orleans.

The film ultimately is too tedious and meandering to have the desired impact, with its subject matter more appropriate for a short newsmagazine segment than a feature length documentary.

Stirring and lurid in equal measure, the film is compelling in its details but queasily detached: verité verging on exploitation.
