At the time of a
paralyzing drought in the West a family is worried about their dying cattle.
Added on top of this worry is the daughter, Lizzie. The two brothers and father
are convinced that she is becoming an old maid. The brothers try every possible
scheme to marry her off, but without success. Nor is there any sign of relief
from the dry heat, when suddenly from out of nowhere appears Starbuck, a
fast-talking, charismatic man with quite the sales pitch. Claiming to be a
"rainmaker," he promises to bring rain, for only $100. After being
welcomed in, Starbuck lights a powder keg of potential within this tightly knit
[and] insight into the human heart.... The touch of a poet.... A hit you must
see." - N.Y. Mirror.
