Hurricane Katrina devastated the lives of thousands of people along America's southern coastline. National attention has focused mainly on New Orleans, on how destructive the flooding was and how slowly the city is picking up the pieces. But 90 miles east, in the coastal city of Biloxi, Mississippi, a dramatically different story is unfolding. Fueled by its expanding casino industry, Biloxi is poised to recover faster than anyplace else on the Gulf Coast. Some say Biloxi will be a better place to live after Katrina. But not for everyone. Rebuilding Biloxi looks at ordinary people trying to rebuild their lives, and a city struggling to reclaim itself.
