Ocean of Doubt: Polluted Waters, Broken Communities

Life in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon disaster

Four months after the Deepwater Horizon disaster Alexandra Cousteau visits the Gulf States to find friends, communities and livelihoods burdened and broken by distrust and uncertainty in the aftermath of the the largest oil spill in US waters. In a region whose heart and soul can be found in the marine bounty of the gulf's rich waters, Cousteau discovers that people are not only losing their jobs, but their way of life. "Ocean of Doubt: Polluted Waters, Broken Communities" puts a human face and stirring voice to that story of incalculable loss.
