    All video of Katrina and her aftermath was filmed by James L. Bills in New Orleans as it happened.

    Without the means to escape the onslaught of one of history's most feared storms, James and his family take refuge at a hotel in downtown New Orleans. Just a few blocks away from them lies the Convention Center, in the other direction the Superdome. While he grabs his camera and teams with his good friend Gabriel to document the events they saw unfolding in front of them, James' wife Tracey gathers their two young children and camps out on the second floor, creating a storm and human proof barrier that will protect them (along with their two dogs and four cats) from all harm. Over a period of seven anguished filled days and nights, they weather a devastating hurricane, suffer the loss of water and power, food supplies wither to nothing, and hungry & armed outsiders roam in front of their hotel looking for supplies they don't have. James and Gabriel walk miles to the infamous Tchoupitoulas Walmart to try and find supplies for their families and even venture to the Superdome and Convention center in their search.

    Although they are in a 21st Century American city, they find themselves living like refugees from the Dark Ages. It is only with the raw instinct to survive that they find the will and the means to make sure water is found, food is secured, and their families protected.
