Two communities living along the same river come into conflict when one decides to build a dam. This animated parable explores the concept of ownership of natural resources and whether they can be shared and even stolen. It is part of a series of five fun and engaging short films that explore fundamental philosophical concepts through everyday questions that children ask and adults often struggle to answer.

The films provide a springboard into wider philosophical exploration and debate in the classroom and beyond. Each film consists of a beautifully animated parable, intercut with a variety of different children's responses.

The series explores concepts such as morality, identity, perception and equality and aims to help Key Stage 2 students to think laterally and creatively.
