A 90-minute documentary directed by Vince Morelli and Jason Berry which was shot before, during and after Hurricane Katrina, telling the story of three African-American high school seniors as they navigate through their final year in “the worst public school system in America.” The film examines the core of our American values, the framework by which we live, and how our most vaunted beliefs and government policies have played a role in our nation’s shame.
