Set in a time of paralyzing drought in the West, we meet a girl whose father and brothers are as worried about her becoming an old maid as they are about their dying cattle. Enter a charming, fast talking con man, who promises to bring rain. A fable of how faith can carve a fairy tale out of the harsh realities of our daily struggles, while reminding us that love, and the magic of a summer night, can make everything possible.

Need some extra cash? Sell your car or… why not kill your wife? It’s murder, money, sex and blackmail in this classic mystery, the source for the much-loved motion picture by Alfred Hitchcock.
