Sean, a lone rider and drug dealer, is trapped in a world of sleaze-bags and easy women - until he meets Lilly - a mysterious beauty and soul mate. Yet, what was supposed to be a new beginning for them, turns out to be a fatal journey.
Set in the early 1980s, The Cherokee Word for Water begins in the homes of a small town in rural Oklahoma where many houses lack running water and others are little more than shacks. The movie is told from the perspective of Wilma Mankiller and full-blood Cherokee organizer Charlie Soap who join forces to battle opposition and build a 16-mile waterline system using a community of volunteers. In the process, they inspire the townspeople to trust each other, to trust their way of thinking, and to spark a reawakening of the universal indigenous values of reciprocity and interconnectedness. This project also inspired a self-help movement in Indian Country that continues to this day. The movie is dedicated to Wilma Mankiller's vision, compassion and incredible grace.Written by

A worthy movie
This movie will not win any major academy awards. This movie is infinitely better than most produced by hollywood.
Any deficiencies in acting or production values are more than compensated for by the messages of hope and inspiration.
