New Orleans. Hurricane Katrina crashes into the city. The levees burst. And two small-time ex-cons with big dreams get the idea that now would be the perfect time to rob a bank. Catch is, the bank they plan on robbing is in the center of New Orleans - and they're on parole in a Houston halfway house. Now, as every sane person tries to get out of The Big Easy, Emmit Jack and Dabny Arceneaux will do whatever it takes to get in. They journey through a tide of human suffering that makes their own troubles seem petty. Dabny wants to help. Emmit sees only the money. But a rogue commander of the ruthless security force "Dark Rain" has his sights set on taking down the same bank. If Emmit and Dabny don't outrace him, their last hope for a second chance could be washed away in the floodwaters - along with their lives.
