About the Movie — White Water

Starring Larenz Tate, Sharon Leal and introducing twins Amari and Amir O’Neil, White Water is the imaginative tale of Michael, a seven-year-old black child in the summer of 1963 who becomes obsessed with the desire to taste water from the “whites only” drinking fountain. Michael sets out on a quest to do the unthinkable: to drink from it.

When his loving and protective mother, Annie (Leal), and free-spirited father, Terrance (Tate), learn of Michael’s obsession with tasting the “white water” they do their best to steer him away from this risky adventure. But no one, not his friends, parents or even the KKK can take Michael off his path.
