It's the spring of 2021 and the unthinkable has happened: a certain someone has been elected to a second term as President. Megascreens have metastasized in public spaces, blaring the good news: a red tsunami has obliterated the last remnants of the Resistance, abortion is now a capital offense, and a wall is being built on the northern border. In this funhouse-mirror image of America, a bored and disgruntled cousin of the Kardashian clan meets an intriguing man who promises her access to the president. In the nation's capital, the vice president performs the stations of the cross for an unrequited love, and the first lady hides a secret behind the White House walls. Meanwhile, a TV anchorman and a pot-smoking geologist team up to delve into the mystery of Montana's spiking suicide rates. And as life in these United States solidifies into a brutal alternative reality, a Syrian refugee named Petra fights to secure a homeland on a patch of garbage in the sea. At once savage, funny, and strangely hopeful, Hole in the Sky is a satirical portrait of a country where one person's hell is somebody else's wonderland.
