Synopsis

A romantic comedy drama, Summer Rain tells the story of three girls living together in Brighton - Britain's sexy and funky coastal capital. Tangled relationships; one night stands; frustrated ambitions; love and friendship are at the heart of this modern coming-of-age story.

At her 21st birthday party Michelle (Clea Smith) breaks up with her long time boyfriend Gary (Paul Vaughan Evans), but he has other ideas and will do anything to win her back. However, Michelle meets charming young executive Michael (Charlie Watts) complicating Gary's campaign.

Poor little rich girl Vicky (Lara Clancy) has become a slave to daytime TV and she is kept down by her slacker boyfriend Colin (Paul Maddocks) but she still has dreams and is forced to face them with the return of Carly (Daisy Beaumont).

Becky (Cath Sampson) is due to take her finals at University - If only she could stop clubbing and messing men around, especially Neil (Charlie Allen).

Armed with only chocolate and ice-cream together they face the world, falling headlong into their twenties, realising that it is time to start growing up - but how? After all, into every life, a little rain must fall.
