Ken sits out the back, in the flatlands that surround Old Goole, and watches the weather. That’s what he was doing with poor Lucy, that fateful day, sat on the roof of his house, lifting her up to the sky. Lucy’s friend, Florrie, she knew what would happen. All of this is picked up by Alfie de Losinge’s machine, which he had designed to control the weather. Instead, amongst the tiny atoms of cloud formations, he receives fragmentary images of events that slowly unfold to reveal a tender, and ultimately tragic, love story.
