Louisiana, USA. Following the explosion of the deep sea drilling platform, a sea-floor oil gusher flowed for 87 days, until it was capped on July 15, 2010. The total discharge is estimated at 4.9 million barrels (210 million gallons). Through water closures, contaminated product, bureaucratic red tape, leadership incompetence, lost income and lawsuits, the Campo family endures. Despite a direct hit by Hurricane Isaac, the assumed death knell to their struggle to maintain some semblance of their way of life, the St. Bernard community endures.
Come Hell or High Water, the people of Shell Beach and their culture shall endure.
