Naked in the Rain


They seem like opposites: River's a troubled teen who loves to fight; Brian is a piano prodigy who attempted suicide. But together they forge a bond beyond anything they imagined.

River and Brian run away with dreams of escaping their abusive homes and exploring the world. But reality hits as they wander the streets of Los Angeles: no money, no food, nowhere to go. Until they meet a stranger who will change their lives forever….

Lured into a world of drugs, sex and power; a world of seductive beauty and terrible secrets.

Can they escape? Do they want to?

Featuring lyrics by The Cure, Tori Amos, Placebo, PJ Harvey, Smashing Pumpkins, Bauhaus, and more.
