Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of Billy Beaumont, who returns to his home town after several years' absence. Billy is a con man who poses as a rainmaker and his home town is in the midst of a severe drought. Sam is reluctant to take advantage of them but in the end decides to use science in his favor and try to make it rain. With Al searching for a scientific way to make that happen, he also learns the real reason Sam is there: to make sure that Billy's brother Ralph and his wife Annie stay together. That may be more difficult than it may appear at first since she still has feelings for Billy. Written by garykmcd
