Synopsis: 

Water follows the experience of Mary, a seven-year-old girl living with her family in rural New Zealand. One morning Mary discovers a burst pipe under the kitchen sink. Rather than dealing to the problem, the family ignore the leak, preferring to follow their banal daily lives, including their anticipation of a rugby game versus France that night.

The leak continues and slowly the house floods. A black comedy of surreal proportions, Water is a film about procrastination, denial and global warming. How one small problem, when ignored, can lead to disastrous consequences.
