This provocative short documentary gives a country perspective of the recent water shortages around Melbourne and the proposed pipeline development from the Campaspe area to Melbourne.

Images of farmers at work in the Gunbower region are set to an orginal song written by J.R. Williams about the plight of the dairy farmer. Williams hopes to communicate that farmers are doing it tough, and questions whether taking water away from regional towns is a sustainable solution for Melbourne's water shortage.
