Ayda “Thunder” Bell is still recovering from a college date rape when she joins The Pistils, her outspoken, bisexual sister’s hip hop/jazz trio. As Ayda begins to heal and own her self-worth, she gives her trust to the Indigenous sax player Viper, a troubled artist whose violent paintings both upset and inspire her. Both Ayda and her sister rudely argue with and make enemies of a fundamentalist deacon and young street preacher who condemn their gay and Pro-choice views yet cannot hide a less-than-spiritual attraction to Ayda. Meanwhile, a young Cherokee woman in their neighborhood goes missing, then murdered.
