The water man
Gunner (Lonnie Chavis) sets out on a quest to save his ill mother (Rosario Dawson) by searching for a mythic figure who possesses the secret to immortality, the Water Man. After enlisting the help of a mysterious local girl, Jo (Amiah Miller), they journey together into the remote Wild Horse forest -- but the deeper they venture, the stranger and more dangerous the forest becomes. Their only hope for rescue is Gunnerâ€™s father (David Oyelowo), who will stop at nothing to find them.

|display_description||Touching family drama explores love, friendship, and loss. The Water Man follows young Gunner Boone (Lonnie Chavis), who's moved to a small logging town in Oregon with his mother, Mary (Rosario Dawson), and father, Amos (David Oyelowo), who recently returned from being stationed in Japan. Mary is quite sick with cancer but has kept the full truth of her diagnosis from Gunner, who spends most of his time reading and drawing a graphic novel about a ghost detective. After Gunner discovers that his mom has leukemia, he's desperate to find a way to help her beat the odds. When he hears a neighborhood girl named Jo (Amiah Miller) say that she's seen "the Water Man," Gunner's curiosity leads him to research the legend and talk about it with a local funeral director (Alfred Molina), who explains that the story is about a miner who found a special rock that brought him back to life after a flash flood killed him and his wife. He supposedly still haunts the area looking for his dead wife to resuscitate. Gunner offers Jo money if she's willing to escort him to where she last spotted the Water Man, hoping to find him and convince him to help Mary.|
