THAT WHICH REMAINS presents the aftermath and the emotional cost of Hurricane Sandy by detailing the individual struggles of a couple, residents of Long Beach, NY. The Hurricane caused at least 104 deaths in New York and New Jersey, and it destroyed or damaged 305,000 housing units in New York alone. Noemi and Victor were one of many other residents of Long Beach, who stayed in their homes when Sandy's storm surge hit New York on October 29, 2012. The couple's blind dog, Sandy, was adopted after surviving Hurricane Katrina. While it was a Category 1 storm, Hurricane Sandy became the second most expensive storm in U.S. history, after Hurricane Katrina.
