Synopsis: In a future in which most water has disappeared from the Earth, we find a group of children, mostly teenagers, who are living at an orphanage, run by the despotic rulers of the new Earth. The group in question plays a hockey based game on roller skates and is quite good. It has given them a unity that transcends the attempts to bring them to heel by the government. Finding an orb of special power, they find it has unusual effects on them. They escape from the orphanage (on skates) and try to cross the wasteland looking for a place they can live free as the stormtroopers search for them and the orb.

Let them do 20 cubic meters.

Hurry up! Come on, let's go!

All right, it's a good game!

All right. Come on! It's my roll.

Twenty cubic meters by sundown

or double that tomorrow.

Start digging!

- What is that?

- What's that supposed to be?

Hey, crowbrains! No birds allowed.

You got a problem, Darstar?

Bye-bye, Mr. Magic.

The guy's a total moon.


- I like the sweat.

- Get out, you creature of filth!

Hey, I just wanna talk.

Maybe just a little hands-on parley?

Now I'm listening.

Gavial! Get out of there!

Next time.

Well, little Stakker,

they gave us 20 cubes in the ditch.

Yes, there's times

when it pays to be just a mascot.

- Forget it. He's not wearing his ears.

When's the next water privilege?

How long do I gotta wear this scuzz?

You're gonna have us holding

our noses for the next two days.

Unless we had a rainstorm.

Sure, well, how about a hurricane

or a flood while you're at it?

You believe all that dog squeeze

they feed us in class?

That's not the way it was.

Here's how it used to be.

"Thunder rolls distant across the sky,

"in echo to pale flashes of lightning.

"The vast cloudscape thickens.

"The scent of purest water

hangs in the air to be savored,

"before the first large warm drops fall.

"Then, within seconds, the air is no more,

"replaced by a vertical curtain

of falling rain.

"The land drinks

and the earth is refreshed."

Could you imagine to see clouds

and feel rain falling from the sky?

One of the few good things the

Protectorate ever did was outlaw fiction.

- Where'd you get this?

- Never mind! Just give it back!

Well, before you get so over-amped

over these pseudo-factoids, I'd...

- I didn't just hear that, I felt it.

- What was it?

Well, let's hope it's not another earth shift.
