Passing Storms

In September 2017, the US Virgin Islands were hit hard by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which arrived just two weeks apart.

Meet the people living on the 32-square-mile island of St. Thomas, and witness as they learn to rebuild—and even thrive—in the face of unbelievable loss. In this short documentary series, we follow a group of residents as they sort through the emotional and physical wreckage and come together to party. You can't skip Carnival, after all.
