Some people revel and play in the rain;other dread it and hide at first drop. For high school student Takao, a summer shower is a source of artistic inspiration... but when he skips school in order to sketch in a rainy garden. Takao finds an ever greater muse in Yukino, an older woman who seems adrift in the world. Despite the difference in their ages and lives, they strike up a comfortable relationship that slowly evolves as they randomly meet in the same garden whenever it rains. But with the rainy season coming to a close, Takao wonders if there's enough time left to put his feelings into actions and words. What will happen between a young man and woman when the rain falls once again in THE GARDEN OF WORDS?
