In a story of human folly, comedy and enlightenment set within the fictional Caribbean island of Wui, a former British colony, Nicky suffers a number of mishaps in a constructing small island ruled through leaders out and in of the administrative who most likely don't have any clue approximately their actual projects -- that's beside the point to governance as the ruled are both too busy with minutiae or too daft to care. in the middle of overwhelming small island mentality, gossip, plural society matters, cricket, calypso, carnival and the necessity for enormous intakes of food and drinks influencing people's behaviour, values and loyalties, underwater volcano Kick'Em Jenny erupts, killing all people and destroying every little thing at the island. a couple of politicians "accidentally" shop themselves through being out of the island on that fated day, in addition to the fortunate Nicky, one of many few who believed that the volcano was once a true probability (apart from her mysterious protector and an American college professor stumbled on lifeless at the island in suspicious circumstances).
A dramatic and infrequently comedian story of affection, hate and indifference.
