The Water - Regional (US)

In a small town along the Onkeenton River, a gentle rain starts to fall as the town gathers for breakfast at the café. From the pontificating mayor to the schoolgirl hastily preparing her assignment on dams, the rain is a reminder of past floods and a metaphor for the cycle of life. As the townspeople prepare to fight the rising waters, will their efforts save the town or will the river wash away more than just their homes? In the aftermath of the storm, lives will both be forever changed and remain the same. Featuring a score filled with folk sensibility and pop references, The Water highlights a tight-knit community dealing with everyday life on a floodplain, lived at a price and loved with a passion.
