On August 29, 2005, Canadian billionaire Frank Stronach watches on his TV as water and chaos raged in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Shocked to see abandoned victims fend for themselves, while FEMA fumbled over red tape, he decides to command a private rescue operation. Stronach, chairman of the Magna International auto-parts empire, begins by whisking hundreds of New Orleans residents to safety. Then with a purchase of an 800-acre plot of land in sleepy Louisiana bayou country, he lays the foundations for a bold $7 million social experiment.
