Tiga Norelia’s village of Creve has a single water source: a bacteria filled cistern at the bottom of a steep mountain. When a Texas based NGO tries to drill water wells for the community the drilling rig becomes stuck at 225 feet in the ground, threatening any hope of clean drinking water. In order for drilling to continue, the men of the village must dig it out by hand, a near impossible task.
