Emilio Rivera’s Top 5 Things You Need To Know About WATER & POWER


WATER & POWER, tells the story of two brothers nicknamed Water & Power by their hard-working father who was an irrigation field man for the famed Department of Water & Power of Los Angeles (LADWP). From the blue-collar housing projects of the city’s Eastside to the very corridors of power where deals are made in the City of Angels. WATER & POWER explores a cautionary tale with a Chicano twist. Told in the classic L.A. noir style, with a darkly humorous tone.

WATER (Enrique Murciano) is a rising political star and California state senator. POWER (Nicholas Gonzalez) is a top cop in the LAPD elite upper chain of command. Following an unexpected and unavoidable tragedy, the brothers find themselves in a seedy motel room on the eastern edge of Sunset Boulevard on a dark and rainy night. Can they survive the long night? Can there be Water without Power? Will they remember the tough love lessons taught to them by their hard-working father?
