trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life,
arrives in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans to work as an
insurance claims adjuster. Greeted by his Uncle Stully
(Robert Longstreet), a seasoned claim adjuster, he is
quickly immersed into the routine: move fast, don't get
emotionally involved, and make a lot of money. Turner, not
prepared to deal with people who have lost everything,
is totally overwhelmed. In a moment of crisis, Turner
agrees to help Nixon (Eddie Rouse), a local man, find his
lost dog. In exchange for Turner helping look for the lost
dog, Nixon lends a hand with Turner's insurance claims.
