Amnaj Boonngamanong, owner of a Florida gulf coast bar, En La Playa, is forced to decide whether to sell his niece to pay gambling debts to a gangster known for his brutality to women or to risk his own life by refusing. He sells his niece. His decision sets off a chain of deadly events-as unstoppable as the hurricane that is battering the coastline-that alters the lives of his family, the undocumented immigrants in his bar, a prizefighter with no hands, a veteran of the Afghanistan war, and a toddler lost at sea. Told from multiple points of view, The Sky After Rain charts the depths to which people will go to endure the storms in their lives and to find salvation in the bonds they form with each other.
