The real tale of 1 circle of relatives, stuck among The usa’s largest coverage screw ups: the struggle on terror and the reaction to Storm Katrina.
Abdulrahman and Kathy Zeitoun run a space-portray trade in New Orleans. In August of 2005, as Storm Katrina strategies, Kathy evacuates with their 4 babies, leaving Zeitoun to look at over the trade. Within the days following the hurricane he travels the town by way of canoe, feeding deserted animals and serving to aged buddies. Then, on September sixth, cops armed with M-16s arrest Zeitoun in his house. Advised with eloquence and compassion, Zeitoun is a riveting account of 1 circle of relatives’s unthinkable battle with forces past wind and water.
