In October 2012, Superstorm Sandy swept along the East Coast. Eighteen miles long and only a few blocks wide, Long Beach Island, New Jersey is home to approximately 20,000 year-round residents. Battered by a high storm surge, flooding and winds, the island was evacuated, leaving dozens of homes and businesses in ruins from the wrath of Sandy. In the course of their first full year after the storm, the residents of Long Beach Island embark on the rebuilding process, finding comfort and relief from the small triumphs of individual families to larger political issues. This character-driven film highlights the resilience of the Island’s inhabitants during the grueling rebuilding process of their beloved neighborhood. Discussion with director Jeff Reichert
