When the Murphy family faces the loss of their lifelong home, the secrets they’ve kept buried for years are suddenly exposed – leaving them vulnerable not only to nature, but to each other. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the Murphys fight to protect their home, their community and their dignity in this compassionate portrait of a working class family struggling to keep their American Dream alive.
