After the Storm
(USA, 2009, 90 mins)
In order to reopen a community center destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, a group of New Orleans teens joins forces with theater professionals from New York to stage a benefit production of the musical Once On This Island. As opening night draws closer, the kids must balance their commitment to the show with the surreal, often heart-wrenching, realities of living in post-Katrina New Orleans. From executive producer Rosie O'Donnell, AFTER THE STORM is an inspiring, captivating look at how a small group of people can effect a huge amount of change.
