Raven Middlefield is on her way home to celebrate Christmas with her family for the first time in years when she accidentally foils an armed robbery attempt. The local newspaper runs the story first: "Hometown Girl Does Good." When the robber is connected to an interstate crime spree, the story goes national, and everything in Raven’s life gets caught in the resulting undertow. Fish Stories explores the lives of ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary situations. It is a story about homecomings, and the baggage that we bring with us.
