Have you ever told a lie?

Done something you wish you hadn’t?

Something that landed you in hot water?

In a town where nothing ever happens and no one ever leaves, best friends Toni, Shane, Mark and Melanie attempt to curb their boredom drinking at their broken down local, swimming at the dam and kicking around their dust bowl town. Today is no exception, but when an alcohol fuelled revenge attempt goes too far, the friends set into motion an evening that will change their young lives forever.

Something in the Water places a group of frustrated young people in a drinking circle and turns up the heat.

Are the kids really alright? Did anybody stop to check?

This isn’t just your typical coming of age story.
