The play follows a diverse group of characters as they reflect on and experience the devastation, heartbreak, anger, and ultimately, the hope of thousands affected by this Category 5 storm.

This production is the play that Savannah Arts Academy will be taking to the American High School Theatre Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland in August of 2010 and is part of the international Edinburgh Fringe Festival held every year.
