Rain Arnold has fought to be the best daughter she could be. She works hard, helps her mother to cook and clean, and avoids the dangers of the city street as if her life depended on it. But all the time she cannot suppress a feeling that she is a stranger in her own world, never truly fitting in. Then she overhears a heart-breaking revelation of a long-buried secret. In the blink of an eye, everything Rain has ever known - her beloved family and the place she knows as home - is left behind as she is sent to live with total strangers, the Hudson family. Here, in a world of luxury and priviledge, she is still out of place. She finds refuge in the theatre, outside the walls of an exclusive private school. But will this be enough to fulfil her heart's desire: a place to call home?
