What's it About?
Galveston, Texas, 1901. In the aftermath of a massive hurricane,
teenagers Kitty and Jake, Jewish immigrants from Russia, meet up with a black boy,
Jericho, who has strange powers he isn't sure he wants to possess. The three are involved in rebuilding Galveston after the storm and in the dramatic Texas oil boom that literally changes the world.
