As devastating weather patterns and rising sea levels wreak havoc on Florida's infrastructure, a powerful hurricane approaches a small town on the southeastern coast. Kirby Lowe, an electrical line worker, his pregnant wife, Frida, and their two sons, Flip and Lucas, prepare for the worst. When the boys go missing just before the hurricane hits, Kirby heads out in search of his children. Alone, Frida goes into premature labor and gives birth to an unusual child, Wanda, whom she names after the catastrophic storm. Moving from childhood to adulthood, Wanda loses family, gains community, and ultimately, seeks adventure, love, and purpose in a place remade by nature.
