Brothers From The Bottom
Four years after Hurricane Katrina, Trey Simms arrives in his childhood home of New Orleans; a place he vowed never to return. His arrival is met with enthusiasm by all except his brother, Chris, who is suspicious of Trey’s claim that he has returned to work at revitalizing the city. A chess game ensues between the two brothers, as they battle over a proposed real estate project. In the end, gentrification threatens the fabric of their New Orleans neighborhood, and the bond between brothers.
