Somewhere between North Africa and the Middle East, women go and fetch water form the source located in the mountain. They have been doing this forever and in all weathers. Leila, a newly married young woman, suggests to the other women to go on strike by refusing to make love with their husband. No more cuddles or sex as long as the men don;t build a system to bring the water to the village.
