The Thirsty


Earth… Man… Work… A community lives on a piece of land which they inherited from their ancestors. They lead a monotonous life: they plough, sow and wait for the rain… Yet, one day, nature refuses to answer their wishes and rain never comes. Drought threatens them. Radhi, a man from the village has an idea : he wants to keep in harmony with nature. He digs a well and water springs… As water won’t come from heaven, it can only be found underground. The next day, Radhi and his son start working, while all the other villagers come up with many an excuse not to work.
