The Lightning Road

S y n o p s i s 

'The Lightning Road' is a period musical drama with book, music and lyrics by Flora Leo.


Emmeline Quinn's life has fallen apart since the death of her mother. One night she walks out into the middle of a storm, and when lightning strikes, it will change everything. 

Cole Van Buren is running away from his past and desperately looking for something, or someone to renew his faith. When he meets Emmeline, their lives will never be the same again.

This is a story of friendship, courage and hope. The journey of a boy who became a priest and then a soldier, and the girl who gave him something to believe in.
