In the town of Alice Springs in the year 2039, a fish falls from the sky and lands at the feet of Gabriel York. And it still smells of the sea.

In an intricate, multi-layered story that spans four generations and two continents, When the Rain Stops Falling explores patterns of betrayal, abandonment, destruction, forgiveness and love. This powerful drama unfolds with humanity, surprising humor and hope, as the past plays out into the future.
