Rodriguez has laid out subplots of his subjects' transition from New Orleans to Denton. We meet Julia Stewart, who, at age 70, swam to safety through flood waters with her younger brothers. She evacuated to Denton, but understandably was anxious about the home she owned in New Orleans. "When Julia died in 2007, the family was still in rental housing." There are others who likewise appear who are now dead; survivors of Katrina but not its wake.
