Gunner sets out on a quest to save his ill mother. He searches for a mythic figure who possesses the secret to immortality, the Water Man. He enlists the help of a mysterious local girl, Jo. And they journey together into the remote Wild Horse forest. But the deeper they venture, the stranger and more dangerous the forest becomes. Their only hope for rescue is Gunner’s father. And he will stop at nothing to find them and in the process will discover who his son really is.

David Oyelowo directs and also plays Gunner’s father in the film. Emma Needell penned the screenplay. In addition to Oyelowo, The Water Man stars Rosario Dawson, Lonnie Chavis, Amiah Miller, Alfred Molina, and Maria Bello. RLJE Films will release the flick in theaters beginning May 7th.
