For 170 years, a Native American Cajun community has occupied Isle de Jean Charles, tiny island deep in the bayous of south Louisiana. They have fished, hunted, and lived off the land. Now the land that has sustained them for generations is vanishing before their eyes. As Chief Albert Naquin desperately looks for a way to bring his tribe together on higher ground, those that remain on the island cling to the hope that they can stay.

Update: On October 13, 2013, our film premiered at the New Orleans film festival! This is an independently produced and funded film. You can help us bring this important story to the world by making a tax-deductible donation to help with our outreach and distribution costs!
