    • In Uganda, the army violently evacuates farmers from their land, killing those who protest. ROBERT (40), an activist reporter located nearby, suspects that the responsibility lies with Sobek, an international water bottling company with a factory in Uganda and the president in its pocket. Like all the locals, he knows about the rumors that beneath the area are the biggest water supplies in all of Africa. Robert’s efforts result in JOANNA (32), a UN investigator eager to prove her worth, is sent to Uganda with a small team to unfold the truth. As she digs deeper, Sobek’s dirty secrets come to light, and Joanna soon finds herself alone in militant territory, fighting for her life with the help of Robert.
