A small boat, alone on the furious ocean. A family stranded on an island, battered by waves on all sides. A decision which looms, unavoidable, on the horizon.

When a volcano collapses in the ocean and generates a tidal wave of biblical proportions, the world disappears around Louie, his parents and his eight siblings. Their house, perched on a summit, stands firm. As far as the eye can see there is only silver water. It is shaken by violent storms, like jolts of rage.

A remarkable story of destruction, resilience, love, and the invisible but powerful links that bind a family together.
