At the edge of an expansive, barren valley, all that remains of the Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth are a few hollowed-out husks of old buildings. Itís been a decade since the last rainfall, and society has dried up and blown away, along with most living things. Seventeen-year-old Kendal and the few other people remaining can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush. Kendal dreams of escaping with her brother and a young boy she watches over. When a greedy, violent water baron lays claim to the precious few water resources that remain, a heroic Kendal stands up to him and bravely fights for the few cherished people she has left. [mature]

Directorís Statement: Tom Hammock
 
Here in the US, we are in the midst of a massive drought. Itís been getting worse with each year. Governments have historically controlled their populations by controlling the water supply. This idea forms the basis of The Well. We stepped back from the enormous scale of this water issue to focus on a very small, character-driven story set many years into our current drought. A single dry valley controlled by killers, and two teenagers hiding in fear, defending the valleyís last working well, is the classic western storyline, mixed up with a post-apocalyptic world and elements of horror and action. We consciously allowed elements of these different film genres to creep into our film without adhering to the rules of any particular one.
