Summary, etc.: Three years after the destruction of Hurricane Katrina, Henry Rollins ventures to New Orleans to examine the city's current condition first hand. Henry is overwhelmed by the lack of progress being made in the surrounding areas. In his search for answers, Henry instead discovers a fresh slate of devastating problems that now threatens this community post-Katrina. Even as tourism approaches pre-storm levels, tens of thousands of residents find themselves dealing with the depression of a city still living with the wreckage of the levee's breach and now being victimized by a surge in violent crime. Henry's stage performance, at the legendary Tipitina's music venue, is thus a tribute to the people of New Orleans who continue to persevere. Henry also has the opportunity to meet with music legend, Irma Thomas, the "Soul Queen of New Orleans," who explains how the music community has been affected and the role they continue to play in the aftermath.
