  • As Hurricane Katrina hammers New Orleans, it changes the lives of aspiring rap artist Kimberly Rivers Roberts and her street-smart husband forever. Edited together from video footage shot by the couple during and after the storm's devastation, this documentary offers a visceral, personal view of the calamity.
