Cameron Parish, Louisiana. 1957. Hurricane Audrey crashes ashore twelve hours earlier than projected. Residents of quiet coastal towns wake to find they are trapped by rising water. Houses begin to break apart. Livestock and farming equipment swirl through the streets. Survivors cling to oak trees, a refrigerator, and rooftops as they brace for a massive tidal wave rolling toward them through the marsh.
All Over But To Cry takes you inside a fierce hurricane to witness the brink of what humans can physically and emotionally endue. Vivid first-hand accounts from storm survivors are brought to life with recreations, special effects and archival footage for a film that is part oral history and part dramatic narrative.
Hurricane Audrey killed more than 500 people. Humbled by the power of nature, survivors remain true to their roots along the Louisiana coast – a place that is both harsh and beautiful.
