This is the Horn of Africa, a region of the world that is periodically shocked by terrible droughts. Each year, when the drought is coming, after long days of walking, the Borana herders gather with their livestock around their astonishing “singing” wells. These ancient hand-excavated wells are managed by the shepherds themselves, who pass buckets from hand to hand to fetch water. The repetitive chants that resonate in the well are work songs: they create a rhythm that keeps everyone working at the same pace. With its strong photography and its epic narration, the film follows their life during a whole dry season, showing a unique traditional water management system that allows to manage the little available water as the property and right of everyone, without any money being exchanged.
