Zeitoun, a Syrian-American, stays behind after his family packs up and moves away from oncoming Hurricane Katrina. After a week of daily communication, Zeitoun abruptly stops all contact.
I got a great sense of Zeitoun's surroundings and plight, but I tuned out a couple of times. It wasn't necessarily boring, but maybe a little stagnant here and there (no pun intended) -- too drawn out maybe. Other than that, it was interesting to live vicariously through Zeitoun in the terrible aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
