From the ravages of a devastated post-Katrina New Orleans, a new found hope emerges in the form of a free-spirited singer, MESCHIYA LAKE.
Seeking refuge from a drug addiction, Lake finds herself in a New Orleans much changed from the one she had fallen in love with years earlier. Along with Meschiya, we meet her new found “family” of jazz loving, swing dancing young musicians who refuse to give up on the city so many others have abandoned.
True Family shows us New Orleans and Meschiya healing and rebuilding in parallel, rising gracefully from the ashes of tragedy.
