‘I do not believe in God. I do not believe in miracles. I cannot explain this.’

A heartrending drama dealing with the consequences of a terrible and tragic event, and the generational cost of that event which spans four generations and two hemispheres.

When the Rain Stops Falling interweaves a series of connected stories from the claustrophobia of a London flat in 1959 to the windswept coast of southern Australia, and into the heart of the Australian desert in 2039.

Seven people confront the mysteries of their past in order to understand their future, revealing how patterns of betrayal, love and abandonment are passed on. Until finally, as the desert is inundated with rain, one young man finds the courage to defy the legacy.
