Kenzie and Treyden, a couple in their mid-20s who’ve been swept up in a whirlwind six-month romance, find themselves confronting a painful question: Has their love story come to an end?

And we have all experienced this pivotal moment in a relationship. Were we actually dating our partner for the wrong reasons? Was the allure of romance used to fill a void in our life? Were we using our partner to recover from a previous relationship?

As Kenzie and Treyden sit opposite each other at a bar table late at night, they somberly discuss this, and their love story is revealed through a series of flashbacks that illuminate their conflicting, confused beliefs about their relationship.

This poignant, emotional drama explores how in today’s world, the pressures on a relationship, and the obstacles to staying together, have never been greater. The love story of Kenzie and Treyden is their own, but it also reflects the immense societal challenges that we all face in our intimate lives.

Our £6K target is the minimum amount for the production of When the Rain Sets In.

Therefore every single rain pledge for and beyond our target will be used entirely for our film, and when we say 'our' that includes YOU.

You can find When the Rain Sets In across all social media platforms, where we share exciting news about the production and give shout-outs to all of our supporters. So do please follow us.
