Each year, when the dry season arrives in Oromia (Ethiopia), the Borana herders gather with their livestock, around their ancient “singing” wells. With a sensitive approach and an evocative photography, the film follows their life during a whole drought, showing a unique water management system that permits to manage the little available water as the property and right of everyone.
