Abu Ali, an octogenarian, pants as he chases the water truck in his attempt to secure a place in line. He does not understand the recent water shortage that has stricken his northern village of Takrit, especially since massive water containers were recently built on a prominent river that flows nearby. Across Akkar, residents complain about the detrimental effects a water shortage is having on a region that relies primarily on agriculture to earn a meager living.
