It’s 1993, and the South is experiencing the worst drought in history. However, Carl, who is on the autism spectrum, is fascinated by weather and he’s predicting that a storm will demolish his small town in the coming days. In hopes of creating a better life for Carl, his sister Sam decides that they will chase the storm by stealing their mother’s ice cream truck. And so the road trip begins. Unexpectedly, they are joined by their best friend Lewis and estranged older sister, Lillian. Along the way,  they learn about family, forgiveness, and following your dreams. Local filmmakers Hannah Black and Megan Petersen’s debut feature is a heartwarming tale full of authentic moments of family struggle, humor, and hope. 

Prior to the film will be a live, socially distanced, pop-up dance performance choreographed by Nancy Carson.
