Confronting the worst drought on record, Australia's fastest growing region is running out of water. On the cusp of a state election, 27th April, 2006, Premier Beattie is desperate to solve a looming 'apocalyptic' water shortage. He flies by helicopter into the Mary River Valley north of Brisbane to announce the construction of a dam the size of Sydney harbour. It is a shock, ironclad decision that sends waves through unconsulted government departments, councils and local communities. A fight breaks out.
