A Rain to Heavy for Kites chronicles the story of Sidney Shoemaker, and his battle to succeed as a “man,” a golfer, and a lightning knight. When his younger brother is killed in a playful “robotics” experiment gone wrong, Sidney takes to road while his father stays home heading the call of the almighty to build an ark in preparation for a coming storm. Life, love, ensues in only the most interesting way.
