FILM OVERVIEW:
Named after a refinery now owned by Shell Oil, Norco, Louisiana, is home to two distinct communities – one black and one white. Though separated by mere blocks, their realities are worlds apart. A modern David and Goliath story, this movie follows the struggle of a retired teacher and the all-black Diamond Community as they pressure Shell Chemical Company to offer a fair relocation plan for the whole community.

Watch the trailer.
