Rain is the story of a young African-American musician, Rain (Brooklyn Sudano), as she has to face the possible lies of her past and learns the truth about her real identity. As a child, she was raised by loving and nurturing parents. When her sister becomes involved with members of a street gang, Rain tries to intervene to protect her sister. Circumstances take a turn for the worse and Rain finds her ordered and safe life dramatically changed when the street gang brutally kills her sister. Rain is forced to go on the run because of threats from the gang to silence her before she can testify against them. She finds safety in the care of a fiercely protective older white socialite (Faye Dunaway). The more time she spends with this woman the more she feels that the connection she has with this woman is more than just coincidental and may run deeper than she could ever suspect.
