Charles is 14, and after being discovered with his first love he is forced into a mental hospital to cure his sexuality. For the next ten years he endures mental and physical torture as part of that treatment and when he is finally free, he begins a relentless quest for vengeance against the woman who abetted his commitment into that hospital, his mother Charlotte.

The Value of Rain chronicles Charles' journey from hate to the unexpected beginning of redemption, and reveals the destructive nature of families, secrets and revenge.
