DC Caribbean Filmfest: RAIN

Raised by her grandmother on bucolic Ragged Island in the Bahamas, teenager Rain goes to live with her estranged mother in Nassau after her beloved grandmother passes away. But her mother leads a dangerous and self-destructive lifestyle, and Nassau turns out to be a very different place from her former home. At her new school, Rain's track coach (THE SHIELD's CCH Pounder) becomes a mentor to the youngster, and helps her navigate the challenges and realize her potential.
