The drought plaguing the land. Four wild animals that inhabit the mountains of southern Honduras are threatening their survival by lack of water. The situation is so desperate that they decide to join forces to save their lives. So I resolved to go separate ways in search of answers. The four elements embodied in the Water Maga, The Wind Picarillo, Mother Nature and Lorenzo Sol discover them a reality in which humans with their daily practices are the main causes of water shortages, and also those who, with proper care and use of natural resources are able to reverse the situation. End the story with a shift towards public: Have they understood?, Will they do something about it?, We survive or succumb by the passivity of human?, Should we leave home and go away, other lands, where water?

Our four animals (the armadillo, el coyote, the rabbit and the roadrunner) municipalities will reach, communities and villages to tell their story. No viewer can and evade their responsibility. The end of the story we'll decide.
