The Story

A Little Water is a story about the secrets we keep. On the anniversary of a tragic accident four people come together for a weekend by the lake. What transpires in the next twenty-four hours between siblings, friends, and lovers will change them forever.


Why this film?

Our film is about love, loss, and family. We strongly believe that we have a provocative story to tell, that is entangled with relationship hardship, family loyalty, and a tragic loss; these themes are complicated by the towering pressure to succeed in your career.


Why us?

We are two actors who live to tell stories. We have assembled a company of creative people that are passionate about telling this story, and we have been given so much already thanks to some wonderful creative companies and individuals. We are shooting on location at a lakehouse in New Jersey on the RED EPIC DRAGON. If the importance of WOMEN IN FILM interests you as much as it does us, then GREAT. We have a female writer, female director, and a female cinematographer.
