Two people, born and raised in New Orleans, have drastically different lives until a storm unites them. But can love overcome secrets, corruption, and economic class? Can true love survive Katrina? Light-skinned, privileged, and with the right last name, Jake Broussard knows none of the hardships and prejudices Torrie has suffered, but he knows he loves her. Chocolate beauty Torrie Thibodeaux, a resident of New Orleans lower ninth ward, doesn't feel so beautiful in a place where the ideal black woman is light, bright, and damn near White. But she only wants one man, Jake, to think she's beautiful and worthy to be loved. When Hurricane Katrina strikes the Big Easy, it brings Jake and Torrie together but then they are forced to defend their love and fight against tradition, corruption, and greed.
