Facing the imminent threat of a hurricane, six Florida residents ignore the call to evacuate and anchor themselves against the torrents of wind and rain at home. They expect the storm to batter their property—but they don't expect the ways its currents rearrange their lives. Pocketed together, a once-grandmother learns once again what it means to care for teenagers, a sister realizes her worst fear when her younger brother goes missing in the night, and an immigrant challenges the sea. On the other side of town, a sailor faces his empty home, wounded criminal at his side—a criminal wondering just how long she can outrun her mistakes. In the course of a day, this crew must reconcile what the storm has unburied—and, ultimately, the future paths it leaves in its wake.
