In life, Colleen was a force of nature. Six months after her death from cancer, her sisters Maggie and Rosemary rent a beach house in Florida to scatter her ashes, only to find themselves and their respective partners trapped in much more literal storm. Filled with humor and heart, Colleen explores grief, family, and the nature of America’s shifting cultural and environmental climates, leaving the sisters to battle storms outside and in.
