Synopsis

Above the Thunder' tells the mesmerizing story of three generations of women confronting the emotional turmoil of abandonment, and the men with whom their lives converge. Young and ambitious Anna puts her career on hold to support her husband through medical school, only to find out shes pregnant when its her turn. Troubled and difficult from the start, Annas daughter, Poppy, hasnt been home since she drove away with the man who came to buy the familys VW bus. After a twelve-year absence, Poppy begs to reunite with her now widowed mother, only to disappear again, leaving her mysterious and wildly imaginative young daughter, Flynn, in Annas care. This is also the story of Jack and Stuart, a couple struggling with commitment despite their love for one another. When Jack and Stuart meet Anna in a support group, they feel a connection that eventually leads them to form a loving, if unlikely, family. Gorgeously written and imbued with both wisdom and humor, 'Above the Thunder' reminds us that created families can be every bit as vital as the families into which we are born.
