What is this short film or show about a place where it rains for a decade and then is sunny for one day?

Do you recognize this story? Perhaps 15 years ago, I saw a short film or PBS show about a fictional world where it rained for a decade, and then the sun would come out for one day. The show focused on a school full of children, who were preparing for the sun to make one of its rare appearences. [more inside]

In the story, there was a child who remembered the last time the sun came out, but all the other children claimed she was making the memory up. These evil kids locked her in a basement room ... then the sun came out, flowers bloomed, and the kids forgot about the girl they'd locked in the basement. The show ended with the rain coming back, and the children remembering the girl locked in the basement, and bringing her flowers they'd picked. Not especially uplifting, which may have been why, as a child, it totally affected me.
Does any of this sound familiar? I think it might have been based on a book.
