Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left..
Plot: In the near future, society collapses and water becomes scarce. When a greedy water baron starts violently clearing out survivors, Kendal, a 17-year-old teenager, fights the baron’s henchman to keep a well open.

A Realistic Take on the Post-Apocalypse
A teenage girl (Haley Lu Richardson) fights to protect the last working well in a drought-stricken valley from a greedy water baron (Jon Gries).
What I like about his film is that it concentrates on building a world. Although the location used was probably relatively small, we are given the illusion that the entire world — or at least enough of it — has completely dried out. And it is very effective.
We do not have zombies (thank goodness) or unbreathable air. Just the simple idea of a drying up world and the increasing value of water. It works. By gosh, it works. Add in a few guns and a samurai sword, and we have a nice plot. Is it horror? Not really. Science fiction? Sort of, but it is so close to reality it almost gets around that, too.
Pretty much sucked
The well wants us to believe that Oregon is out of water….here’s a hint go left to the ocean and start desalinating….it’s a post apocalyptic movie that revolves around a girl that does everything except eat for 40 days…in which case she would be dead…she is trying to take care of a guy named Dean that you really begin to hate about 15 minutes into the movie….all he does is sleep and complain, when he finally dies I actually yelled hooray!……She eventually finds a means to escape, but does the the stupid thing and opts for revenge. Overall this entire movie sucked, but I will give props to Haley Lu Richardson for actually trying to make this an interesting movie…..she’s a good actress, but just got cast in a horrible movie. I mean come on, all they want is water…and one guy eats half a peach 40 days later….it’s not a survival movie…it’s a joke.
