Rachel (Nicola Hanekom) burns with her land,  becoming dry and brittle, as the drought bares down on her.  Her husband, Tomas ( Grant Swanby),  leaves  their farm in search of water and grazing for their animals. 
When Ray (Pope Jerrod), a water diviner sent by the drought relief program, arrives on the farm, Rachel is confronted with feelings she has long forgotten. She falls in love and abandons her life on the farm to follow Ray. A chance meeting with Shaanika (David Ndjavera), a torturer who worked for the South African side during Namibia’s liberation war, injects a chilling reality into the love story.
Instead of finding her salvation with Ray, Rachel is sucked into a vortex of colliding histories and traumatic memories. But this takes her to a place of water and healing within herself.
