RAIN IN A DRY LAND is a verité feature documentary chronicling two years in the lives of two Somali Bantu families as they journey from Africa to America. It is a story of time travel, culture shock, a leap from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century as these subsistence farmers find themselves in a mysterious and confusing land. More importantly, it is an intimate, human story about two extraordinary families who somehow managed to keep their spirits intact through years of mayhem and deprivation, and whose astonishing, open-hearted resilience enables them to make a new life.
