The bastard child of MAD MAX and A FISTFULL OF DOLLARS, THE WELL is a post-apocalyptic thriller set in the very near future. Fresh water, our most valuable commodity, has run out and society has collapsed. In a drought-stricken, Oregon valley, a greedy water baron, like so many railroad & cattle barons of yesteryear, is determined to clear out every survivor -- even by the most violent means. Only our heroine Kendal, a brave 17 year-old grown far beyond her years, stands in the way of this villain and the evil water company that supports him. This harrowing story is built of action, suspense and compassion for one girl’s gritty determination to fight for what’s right, no matter the cost.
