This hilarious musical tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution takes place in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
