Product Description:

Just six months after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans native Herbert Gettridge, an 82-year-old resident of the Lower Ninth Ward, began to rebuild his broken home by hand. This special FRONTLINE investigation chronicles the Gettridge family's reconstruction process over the course of two years, and probes the chain of governmental failures that left Katrina victims out in the cold.

Description by PBS Video:

Six months after Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans, producer June Cross came across 82-year-old Herbert Gettridge working alone on his home in the Lower Ninth Ward, a neighborhood devastated when the levees broke in August 2005. Over the next two years, Cross would document the story of the extended Gettridge clan, an African-American family with deep roots in New Orleans, as they struggled to rebuild their homes and their lives.
