Jewels returns to New Jersey after her father’s death and joins her mother and her sister Tess to prepare for the funeral. She returns home at the same time a hurricane is heading towards the Jersey shores. During these seven days, she also decides to visit four women: victims, lovers, and friends of her father, a Pentecostal pastor who lost his church and family in sexual scandal twenty years earlier. As she breaks their code of silence, Jewels finds herself in a poetic and magical world of Bible verses and hurricanes and a collection of childhood characters from Moses and Tinker Bell to Cinderella and the Little Mermaid. Together, Jewels and her friends, search for the faith she lost and the father she thought she knew.
