What does it mean to be exiled in your own country? Filmmakers Ed Pincus and Lucia Small embark on a 60-day road trip from New England to Louisiana, and ultimately into the Katrina devastation zone to meet evacuees who have lost their homes. When the film opens, it's 6 months since Katrina hit New Orleans, causing the largest internal migration in American history. The story of an American Diaspora unfolds - the displaced struggling with loss of home, family, and culture. Emotions range from deep pain to surprising humor, as filmmakers and subjects tackle questions of race, class, and our government's failure to protect its own.
