Belle River

Belle River

In 2019, the Mississippi spring flooding reaches record highs. In Louisiana, the inhabitants of Pierre-Part are preparing for the worst. Barring an unexpected turnaround, the local authorities will soon be forced to open the gates of the Morganza spillway, in order to protect the towns of New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Faith and resilience are the two best weapons they still have, in the face of uncertainty.
