This is the story of Nasir (28), a disingenuous water distribution operative and truck driver working for the Los Angeles department of water and power during the worst drought in L.A. history. On the brink of a promotion, Nasir learns of a plot spearheaded by his sister to take revolutionary action against the possible privatization of the city’s dwindling water resources. Nasir, who has adopted a blind eye approach to the company’s corruptions, must choose whether his individual survival is more important than that of his entire community.
