Set in Canada, Downburst stars Kit, a disaffected runaway living on scraps in the city of Winnipeg, dodging members of the nefarious Shredders gang, and selling fake IDs to get by. This line of work leads her to do business with a young girl name Aura who happens to looks exactly like Kit, but “cleaner.”
After the cops crash her place of business and Kit is displaced again, she seeks refuge at a train yard and spots her doppelganger having a run-in with men who appear to be Shredders, but sport tattoos that the gang members aren’t known for. Aura is murdered as Kit watches and tries not to make a sound. Shortly after, while wandering the crime scene in a stupor Kit is kidnapped by a man who believes her to be Aura, and her life is further turned upside down as she is taken to a summer camp for deep in the wilderness of Canada.
Soon, Kit learns that Aura was no ordinary teenage girl, she belonged to a tribe of Windwalkers—direct descendants of the First Parents who can ride the wind—and was headed to camp to hone her skills in battle and find her place among her people. Kit has always had trouble fitting in, and now she must try to not only fit in with three hundred other teens, but also fit with a people who are not her own, or be branded a spy and killed.
