Synopsis: On April 20, 2010, communities throughout the Gulf Coast of the United
States were devastated by the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon, a
state-of-the-art, offshore oilrig operated by BP in the Gulf of Mexico.
The blast killed 11 of 126 rig crewmembers and injured many more,
setting off a fireball that was seen 35 miles away. After burning for
two days, the Deepwater Horizon sank, causing the largest offshore oil
spill in American history. The spill flowed unabated for almost three
months, dumping hundreds of millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of
Mexico and the Atlantic ocean, shutting down the local fishing industry,
polluting the fragile ecosystem, and raising serious questions about
the safety of continued deep-water offshore drilling.
The documentary crew traveled to small towns and major cities across Alabama, Louisiana and Texas to explore the fallout of the environmental disaster. Years later, the Southern Americans still haunted by the Deepwater Horizon explosion provide first-hand accounts of their ongoing experience, long after the story has faded from the front page.
