Sunshine Follows Rain (Swedish: Driver dagg faller regn) is a 1946 Swedish historical drama film directed by Gustaf Edgren and starring Mai Zetterling, Alf Kjellin and Sten Lindgren. The film is based on a 1943 novel by Margit Söderholm.
Söderholm's novel won an award in a competition, and director Gustaf Edgren who had been on the jury wished to make a film out of it. However Carl-Anders Dymling the head of Svensk Filmindustri, was unimpressed with the story and proved very resistant to the project. However, the film turned out to be the company's most profitable of the sound era.
The film's sets were designed by the art director Arne Åkermark. It was made at the Filmstaden in Stockholm with some location shooting around Hälsingland where the film is set. It premiered at the Palladium in Stockholm. It was later released in Germany and Austria by Constantin Film.
In nineteenth century Sweden, a wealthy farmer's daughter engaged to be married, begins a romance with a penniless folk musician.
