Comedian Steve Martin and Broadway luminary Bernadette Peters star in a musical drama about the large and growing divide between the dreams of two people and the grim Depression-era lives they lead ... the distance between their gray world and their imaginary one in which it rains Pennies from Heaven. Arthur (Martin) sells sheet music and fantasizes about a world should that behave according to the lyrics of the songs he sells. Eileen(Peters) fantasizes about love. In their minds, these two share a romance, singing and dancing to the popular music of the 1930s. In reality, the affair between the married Arthur and the innocent Eileen destroys them both.
