Season One begins three months after Katrina's devastation and highlights the role of the city in the interconnected personal stories of the musicians, teachers, restauranteurs, radio deejays, and community leaders who reside there. In the middle of the turmoil, a mother desperately searches for her son who disappeared during the hurricane.Treme
