When the men in a fictional village neglect to maintain their water pipeline in favor of drinking in the pub and boasting about their great sex lives, they pin all their hopes on Temelko, a young villager they send to school in the city to learn how to save their water system. Temelko, however, is distracted from his task by his love for his betrothed, Aya. When he returns and diverts the town's meager supply of water for their pre-consummation ritual bath, Aya's indignant refusal of Temelko inspires a Lysistrata-style action among the village women, who all refuse sex to their mates until the pipeline is fixed. Director Veit Helmer (Tuvalu) presents this allegorical tale using only a voiceover and no dialogue, eliciting humorous, physical performances from his multiethnic cast.
