In the midst of a dark storm, two people – one cast out by those she trusted, the other stuck in the mundane – find each other. The pregnant Celestina can stop time, but it’s a power that she can’t control. Everything beautiful about love, both timeless and fleeting, is turned into magic. The moments that they find normal, delicate feelings of home can be everything.

Jackson is recovering from a break up, growing apart from his twin sister, and attempting to find a new normal in his identity as a transgender man. During this tumultuous time, he craves some kind of protection for his heart. When he ingests an experimental drug, he is transformed into Wonder Boy: a superhero who has the ability to create impenetrable forcefields. He uses his power to protect his college campus, but learns that protecting others (and himself) is more complicated than he thought. Jackson must face his masculinity, his vulnerability, what it means to be a superhero, and what it means to care for others.
