Watershed  is the story of two women in middle life, our inseparable connection with the natural world, a longing for freedom, and autism.  It's a black comedy of failed communication and emotional manipulation, well seasoned with compassion and hope.

Watershed Synopsis

Jonathan arrives in the Somerset Levels and shuts himself away in a lonely cottage to write about his obsession – water. He poses an irresistible challenge for Pamela, a forceful pillar of the community. But why is Jonathan so resistant to her blandishments - and so rude?

Only Vinny, Pamela’s long-suffering companion, has the desire and the sensitivity to get to the bottom of Jonathan’s strange behaviour. But she herself is trapped by emotional blackmail. Will Jonathan prove to be her saviour, as much as she is his? Vinny is forced to make a difficult decision, and comes to her own personal watershed.

Storms, fire and floods suddenly raise the stakes for everyone. As the waters rise, emotions are also set to burst their bounds.
