Terry Bradshaw Presents: HURRICANE SEASON

Located just 15 miles west of New Orleans, the tiny town of La Place, escaped the cruel flooding of its neighbor only to suffer a different kind of flood: the overnight influx of 20,000 displaced hurricane victims. Electricity, food, water and shelter become scarce; traffic, unemployment and long lines prevalent. The school system was overrun with 1700 displaced students. Can teenage boys blown together by the winds of Katrina overcome the tragedy of losing their homes and school? Can kids with vastly different racial, economic and religious backgrounds co-exist? Can one-time high schools rivals set aside these differences to band together and lift the spirit of this broken community?

Q&A with the director and special guests will follow the screening.
