Four african girls and a bright rainy day.

DIRECTOR'S NOTES:
When I wrote the short film "It's Raining" I wanted to tell a little story: real, raw, no filters. But at the same time I wanted to give these four girls a day of happiness. Every day I see these girls and every day I hope they can live their day of happiness.
