Set in the West during a horrific drought, The Rainmaker focuses on a girl whose family is equally worried about her lack of suitors as they are about the lack of rain. The family tries multiple schemes to marry their plain daughter off, but to no avail. That is, until a man who claims to be a “rainmaker” arrives. Intrigued by his melodic tones and theatrical speech, the family pays him $100 if he will create rain. The rainmaker uses his skills to woo the young girl, teaching her that she has had an inner beauty all along, and with the rain also arrives love.
