Based on the myth of Orpheus this beautifully surreal story follows a group of individuals struggling to survive in an apocalyptic post-Katrina New Orleans. Their only desire is to sail the sea in order to reunite with their loved ones. To do that, they must band together as a community- in the most spiritual sense of that word- and use their own hands to build a boat from scratch. All they've got is their undying spirit, hope, and love to keep them going- and thatís more than enough.
