The story follows teenager Ats, whose brother Rain, who is 20 years his senior, unexpectedly returns to the family home in a small seaside town. Here, he must confront his authoritarian father, Kalju, and his mother, a woman on the verge of falling out of love. Ats bears witness to the clash between his father and his brother, two stubborn men from different generations with radically different views of the world. When his father tries to keep Rain, who has lost his bearings, within the boundaries of his world, Rain finds hope in Aleksandra, a mysterious woman with a shady past.

Rain was co-penned by Jürgens and Anti Naulainen, who also co-wrote some of the director’s previous shorts. Portraying the title character, Estonian thesp Indrek Ojari also has his first main role in a film here, as does young Marcus Borkmann, who plays Ats.
