Different paths intercept in one village in the West Bank. Along the broken water pipelines, villagers walk toward an indefinite future. Israel controls the water, supplies only a small amount of water, and when the water stream is not guaranteed, nothing can evolve. The control over the water pressure not only dominates every aspect of life, but also, dominates the spirit.
Bil'in (literally meaning "without water"), is one of the first villages in the West Bank to set up a modern water infrastructure. Many villagers have taken this as a sign of progress, others, as a source of bitterness. The newly-installed pipelines have been used to influence the villagers to cooperate with Israel's intelligence. As a result, the village has been divided into two opposing camps. Returning to the ancient technique of digging wells to collect rainwater could allow the village to express its independence, but the relations between villagers may not survive.
