John Woodward suffers from one of the strangest afflictions the world has ever seen: whenever he is caught in the rain he quite literally begins to melt. His parents used that affliction to gain widespread media attention, claiming it was "for his own good".
For seventeen years he sheltered inside, terrified of being caught in the rain, but one day the outside world comes to him in the form of a beautiful young girl. She seems too good to be true, and he has to struggle to trust her. But what does she really want with him? And why is it that he melts in the rain?
