As news broadcasts begin relating the devastating effects of tornado activity in several midwestern cities, Susan, the owner of Faith Scapes Exteriors, a landscaping company, decides to assist with the rescue efforts.
Together, with her teenage niece Randi, they set out with a trailer full of supplies for the tornado-ravaged victims. When they stop at a local supply store to pick up more emergency items, the situation goes from bad to worse.
Without warning, a tornado slams into the building causing catastrophic damage, trapping them between floors in a freight elevator. During their time imprisoned by elevator walls, Susan begins to relate her life story to Randi in an attempt to show her that God is always in control—even over situations that may seem impossible to us.
Unsure of when or if they will be rescued, Susan decides to focus on her abundantly blessed life instead of their current distress. Ultimately, she relates to her niece a life story that is filled with thought-provoking characters and stimulating events, including her personal testimony of how God helped her overcome her dyslexia disability.
