Distribution Young Ones

In a post-apocalyptic future when water has become the world's most precious resource, those hardened few left alive must do whatever it takes to survive. Done with fighting off raiders to protect what little he has, Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) makes a play to bring a water pipeline to his family's land - but when betrayal comes from those closest to him, it sets off a vicious chain cycle of greed, murder and revenge.
