Rain Dogs is a wild and punky tale of a mother's love for her daughter, of deep-rooted and passionate friendships, and of brilliance thwarted by poverty and prejudice.

Told with a dark lick of humour and an anarchic attitude, Rain Dogs stars Daisy May Cooper as Costello Jones, Jack Farthing as Selby, Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo as Gloria Duke and Fleur Tashjian in her debut role as Iris Jones. They are the four glorious Rain Dogs; a makeshift swaggerous family fed on defiance and chaos, and a deep but complicated love.

Costello Jones is a writer and single mother with a rock and roll swagger and a glint in her eye, a woman who appreciates the glamour of the gutter but would do anything to keep her daughter, Iris, from it.

Selby is a boarding school boy educated on Brett Easton Ellis and Goddard, Costello's loyal soulmate and loving tormentor.

Gloria is Iris's chaotic, directionless and utterly glorious godmother who's running out of second chances.

Iris is a hustler in kid's clothing who loves South Park, William Morris wallpaper and, more than anything, her mum.
