A film by Maria Govan
Bahamas 2008

A teenaged girl with no parental role model in her life, must look within herself for strength and discovers she has a gift for running. She receives guidance from her school’s track coach, Ms. Adams, but the poverty and despair of her mother’s reality threatens to spoil her dream.

Director Maria Govan makes her debut with one of the first films indigenously produced in the Bahamas. Rain shows a darker side of the country that tourists rarely see with a striking visual sense that reflects the contrast between the idyllic setting and the harsh realities of Bahamian life.
