Life today is dramatically ...

Life today is dramatically different for many youth, compared to pre-Katrina times. One teen struggles with the trauma of living through the hurricane; a college student trys to plan a career in a city where there are many jobs, but limited professional opportunities; a young musician works to rebuild New Orleans' music culture beyond the tourist trade. These and other young people share their experience, as they work to reconcile a traumatic past with future dreams and present realities. The special also explores the latest in youth culture, featuring original music by talented street musicians and by students at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, the esteemed performing arts high school.
