A warming planet has made water scarce, food a rarity and wearing plants like jewelry fashionable.

James, a hapless office worker, becomes obsessed with nurturing his plant in order to obtain the respect of his peers and risks everything to not Wait for Rain.

Wait for Rain is a futuristic comedy about James the pitiful office worker who must sacrifice himself to get the attention of the girl he desires.
