Based on a book written in 1973 by Peter Reich about his friend, confidante and father, psychoanalyst and inventor Wilhelm Reich.

The story shares memories of growing up in and around his dad's Maine laboratory, Orgonon, and of his fantastical inventions, including the Cloudbuster, which could make it rain. The FDA ordered Wilhelm’s books and machines be destroyed, and he was subsequently arrested by the authorities in front of his 12 year old son Peter because his work went against the status quo. Wilhelm died in prison shortly thereafter.

I still dream of Orgonon
I wake up crying
You're making rain
And you're just in reach
When you and sleep escape me...
