Cajun Navy tells the inspirational story of the men and women who risk life and limb to save people whose lives have been blown away by hurricanes. When central government failed to act post Katrina, a flotilla of volunteers took to the waters to save lives and they’ve been doing so ever since as extreme weather events have come with frightening regularity. Charting the movement’s evolution from its vigilante genesis to 2018’s devastating hurricane season, this powerful film explores the challenges and the triumphs of these every day heroes.
