In a remote and run-down café, Fate brings nine disparate characters together as a tornado thunders in. But appearances are deceiving, and there is always something stranger hidden beneath. Gangsters, gamblers, waitresses, cops, the damnable and the Damned and maybe even God Himself meet in a dusty little diner on the Calexico border to find out the meanings of Fate and redemption.
