TENTS of GOD reveals what happens to a community and to wetlands when a disaster hurricane hits! Superstorm Sandy’s devastation on Staten Island surrendered beach neighborhoods helpless. Through interviews with New Dorp families, Reverend Terry Troia and Lisa Oz the director and producer Catherine Gropper shares their stories . She also learns that overdevelopment on marshlands causes catastrophe for animals and wildlife, also displaced.
