The day before Hurricane Katrina washed over Saint Bernard Parish, Connie Tipado opened her Dallas home to her extended family : all 155 of them . When they evacuated, they did not imagine that their homes would be swamped by 10 feet of water, delaying their return for months. Over steaming pots of homemade gumbo, Connie and her kinfolk draw together, consoling one another in well-knotted bonds of love and reciprocity that have functioned for generations like an emotional ecosystem. But, despite the generosity of Connie and many others who reached out to them, Texas was not entirely comfortable. The lure of home – not just a house, but a unique and vibrant way of life – drew one after the other of Connie’s sisters, aunts and cousins back to their ruined homes on the banks of the Mississippi. They are jubilant to be back on familiar ground. But as the story tracks their return to the bayou and the unexpected difficulties they face, the hope of reclaiming life as it once existed looks increasingly remote. Still Waiting draws viewers into the remarkable story of resilience, family, and attachment to place.
