In the story we discover a small community of rain drops in the cycle of water, chasing the clouds to keep up with the rain. We see their lifetime unfold as they indulge in the rain and are confronted with the inevitable: the rain will come to an end. The greatness of their existence is revealed when the sun comes out and they find that there is nothing to be afraid of.
