The Boy Who’d Never Seen Rain is a strongly-observed portrait of a family facing the challenges of the Australian Outback. Years of drought and hard luck have taken their toll on the Cobblin family.

Meanwhile, their son Danny is almost lost in the shuffle. When they face the tragedy of losing their farm, their lives begin to fragment.
