Lima needed clean water, which brought life and no more stomach worms, like ones swimming in the unhealthy pit in the mining settlement. Although they boiled the water, it was always contaminated with metal scraps. Lima got up with the empty wineskin in her hand and started on her way back home.
“The Kiss of the Water” tells the story of Lima, a woman in search of water in the desert. It has to be purified water, but this is controlled by the Daonais, or masters who manage large corporations. Desperate, Lima is willing to do anything to get what she needs.
