Hurricane Sleep is a sonata of floating and drowning, a story of fleeing and finding, of what we hold onto and what remains when we are forced to let go. Outside is a hurricane.  Sal finds herself in a flooded bodega where she meets Ome and a host of other New York characters fleeing the storm. Between boxed wine, ayahuasca and maybe a seance, it is disaster that brings us closer together and true intimacy is found when we least expect it.
