Florida is slipping away. A powerful hurricane approaches a small town on the southeast coast as devastating weather conditions and rising sea levels slowly destroy the state’s infrastructure. Kirby Lowe, a powerline worker; pregnant wife Frida; and his two sons, Flip and Lucas, prepare for the worst. When the boys go missing just before the hurricane hits, Kirby heads into the high winds to look for them. Left alone, Frida goes into labor prematurely and gives birth to an unusual child, Wanda, named after the devastating storm that has brought her more downfall than ever before.

As Florida continues to unravel, Wanda grows. Transitioning from childhood to adulthood, adjusting not only to the changing landscape, but also to the people left in a place abandoned by civilization, Wanda loses her family, gains community and ultimately seeks adventure, love and purpose in a place that has been rebuilt. by nature.

Described in four parts: power, water, light and time, the Light Pirate reflects the rhythms of the elements and the sometimes rapid and sometimes slow destruction of the world as we know it. Changes we would prefer not to see, a meditation on the future we would prefer not to greet, and a return to the beauty and violence of an untamable wilderness.
