Act 1: New York, a studio in downtown Manhattan,1995. The three estranged heirs of a world-renowned architect meet again on the day of the reading of his will. As tensions mount, the architect's journal from 1960 is discovered. Hoping to learn the truth about their difficult parents, one son eagerly goes through the text, only to be bitterly disappointed. It's cryptic, distant, unreadable: just like his father. One entry reads simply, "Three days of rain."
Act 2 sends us back in time to the same studio in downtown Manhattan in 1960, where the same three actors play their fathers and mother, and we learn the poignant truth of what actually happened in those three sad, beautiful days of rain, and how genius and madness and secrets are unknowingly passed down through the generations, to devastating effect.
