“Rain” is a light-hearted, short animated film about collective awareness. The film shows that a lack of responsibility for one’s actions makes us blindly follow the crowd, leading to tragic events. It is also a film about an individual’s attempt to oppose collective hypnosis and the resulting consequences for the individual and the crowd.
