Told in flashback from his wife's deathbed, William Ward's story traces his first meeting of the beautiful Venus who is from the Lightning Clan, a mystical Native American family living in Arkansas. After William's father is stricken ill, they separate and Venus strikes out on her own in New York, believing that she will find her calling on a magical night in the city. William's father passes away and William now travels to New York to find his Venus. A wild storm, an impromptu play on a city building and an eventual reunion all bring them together. All of this in memory as William, now without his wife, tries to reach her from beyond, seeing visions of her in and around his home during storms. His son believes his father is mentally ill but they both are witness to a miracle on earth.
