The last war began in error.

Whose error, nobody knows. Nor does it matter anymore.

Nothing matters now other than survival.

The nuclear holocaust wiped out all semblance of rhyme and reason.

Cities obliterated, farmlands devastated,

the ecology imbalanced. And all that is left

is a parched and arid wasteland. A scorched and seething Earth

where what little water there is, is hoarded, and kept under heavy guard.

For water is power.

And whoever controls the water...

controls the world.

Faster! Faster! Come on!

- Come on! Come on! Let's go!
- Let's move it! She's getting away!

Come on! After her!

Where did you get the water?

There's more here!

You're not going anywhere, babe.

Where'd the water come from?

Don't move!

We share, right, mister?

Did you hear me?





No. No trade today.

There she is! Pull over!

Come on, let's get her!

Don't lose her this time!

Grab her hands, grab her hands.

- Bastards!
- No.

Hey, man. I'm following her 'cause I have to take her to Trun.

No. Not yet.

Where's the water?

You better start talkin', or you're a dead man.

We found her in the Wasteland. Had a supply of water with her.

Water? Hmm. Bring her inside.

Well, what have we here?

So this is the woman who was looking for Trun, huh?

She had a supply of fresh water.

- From where?
- Never found out. They were ambushed by Stryker and his men.


- Are you sure?
- Positive.



Sir - Well Number 2 has completely run dry, and 5 is dangerously low.

Cut all the rations by one-third, and, uh...

Stop all the water rations for the sick and the wounded.

Sir? Including the warriors?

Slaves and warriors alike. Water is only for those who are productive.

OK, get movin'. Get inside.

Move it, move along. Get in there! Come on, keep it moving!

Come on! Quickly!

Come on, we haven't got all night!

I don't know anybody named Stryk-

What about the water? Talk about the water.

Before we're through, you'll talk.

Get on with it, will ya?

Let's take her down.

Get ready.

Let's go!

Let go of me!

Stay down, stay down!

Hey, everybody, let's go! On the double! There's a riot outside!

Get off of me!

Hey! No!

Easy... easy.

Get out! Get away!

Look out!

Sir! Stryker got the girl.

We... we tried to stop him, but he got away. He won't get very far, though. We - we sent foot patrols after them.

- What is this place?
- Trun's camp.

Hey, wonder what he wants?

Stryker! It's been a long time.

We didn't know if you were dead or alive.

- Stryker! - How ya doin', Sam?
- Good to see you.

- How's things going?
- Fine.

- How do you know him?
- He's Trun's brother.

OK. Yeah.

- Where is Trun?
- He's out on patrol. He should be back any time now.

What about that damn weasel? That thing back there?

Hey! Who's your friend?

Kardis' men ambushed the patrol! They got Trun!

Move it.

You're gonna sit there in the sun until you tell me what I wanna know.

See how long you can stand it.

Looks like you got yourself in deep shit this time.

Now, I'm gonna ask you again: Who is she,

where'd she come from, and where'd she get all the water?

Water... water.

Water? Here.

What's the matter?



Well? How the hell are you?

What the hell do you have on? You smell like a damn goat.

Hey, what happened?

- Tell me!
- Stryker...

Stryker again.

- How about Trun?
- They got him.

- Goddamn. Go after them.
- Yes, sir.

Come on, let's go.
...All right, let's move it out!

Move it!

- They say you're Beet's daughter.
- Yes.

- So, how is the old rascal?
- He's well.

I'm here to take you to him.

You mean he's found the Spring?

Ah, Beet and I had an agreement. The first to find the Spring would make sure the other knew.

Yeah. Well, he certainly took his time in telling you about it.

According to her, they found that water more than seven years ago. And he didn't send her, either.

I came on my own. I thought it was just as wrong to hoard the water as it was to kill and steal for it.

Where have you been all this time?


Why did you do it?

- Do what?
- Disappear, three years ago.

It's not important.

Come on.

You fought by my side against Kardis. Now, all of a sudden, you just up and leave. Why?

Everyone's got their own highway to hell.

You got yours, and I got mine.

- I know where she is!
- OK, come on. Let's go.

- Come on, let's go.
- Somebody's coming!

Some women got Dielha!

Well, we've got to get her back. Get some men. Get the jeep.

We're moving out.

Look, over there!

Let's go! Come on!

Get a move on!

Go after them! Don't let 'em get away!


It's all right. They didn't mean any harm. They were just trying to keep me from showing you where the water is.

OK, we'll bring her along with us. Let's move!

You think I'm doing the wrong thing, huh?

I dunno.

- Everything was so simple in the Colony.
- Out here, people are killing themselves for water.

Water which we have plenty of, but aren't willing to share with them.

It's one thing to be generous; it's another thing to be reckless.

- Coming out here the way you did, you put the whole Colony in danger.
- You believe that garbage about running out of water if more people came to live with us?

I believe what Cerce told me about Kardis is true.

He's evil. And now he knows the water exists. He won't stop at anything to gain control of it.

Don't you see? Kardis was bound to find the Colony sooner or later. That's why I came out to look for Trun -

to prevent the inevitable takeover by Kardis.

Put the water in Trun's hands, and Kardis will be forced to negotiate. And with Trun's army protecting us,

Kardis will never be a threat again. Ever.

Open the gate!


Where have you been?

Protecting all of us.

Have you seen Dielha?

I have received reports that Dielha has gone to talk to Trun, and that now Trun knows of this place.

- I must know the truth!
- Because of Dielha's ignorance,

Two are dead and the rest of us are threatened.

I vote that we close the gates and stop anyone from coming in. Let Dielha's fate be her own.

It is too late for that.

Now that Trun knows, it's only a matter of time.

We have no choice.

Dielha had a choice, and we have a choice. She's out on her own, and the gates are closed.

That's not possible.

Trun is coming. And Kardis will not be far behind, whether we like it or not.

We need Trun to protect us.

- Let me tell you about the Colony.
- Yes, please do! - It's so nice.

It's cool there. The Spring is very deep.

- Is it far from here?
- No, it's not far. We're almost there. It's right over the mountain.

We'll be there soon.

Oh! I forgot to tell you. It's cool in there because it's a cave.

Well, only two more days left of rationing the water.

You don't talk much, do you?

Everything's already been said.


Don't you ever feel anything inside?

I mean, something that you just feel like saying, to get it out of your system.

Yeah, I used to. But not anymore.

People only listen to what they wanna hear. So what's the use?

People don't communicate anymore.

- Do you really want to know the truth?
- Yeah.

OK, we got the truck running. Let's go!


It's up there.

It's good to see you again.

I have often thought about you.

Yeah. Seven years is a long time.

Sam - set up the machine gun nest over there.

Locate some lookout posts, and organize a recon patrol.

Come, let me show you the Spring.

I'll have some!

Isn't it good? I want you to see the Spring.

I'm not sorry for my actions, Father.

Actually, I'm relieved that after all these years, the word has finally got to Trun.

We're doing the right thing. Even I realized time is running out.

There are those who think differently.

That may be so, but I don't see that as a problem.

Our problem is Kardis.

Bazil, go back to the camp, round up the rest of the men, and bring them back here.

I want to talk to your people. I must have absolute control. It's the only way to set up a proper line of defense.

From now on, no one leaves the Colony without first getting direct permission from me.

All patrols will be curtailed, and then we will -

Just stand here and let this self-appointed leader take advantage of our situation.

No one likes the situation here. But Trun has experience with Kardis.

Then let him share his knowledge - not impose it.

So you've decided to leave again, huh?

Yeah, it looks that way.

There's nothing I can say to prevent it.

There's nothing you can say.

OK, I'm gonna ask you one more time: Why?

You got a mirror in your mind. Why don't you go inside and take a good look at yourself?

Tell me what you see.

You're gonna be just like Kardis.

Like Kardis, that's impossible! I'm against everything Kardis stands for!

He believes in oppression! He rules by force!

You know, you're like the clouds in the sky. You look promising, but you'll never give.

Water should never be used to control people.

That's precisely my battle with Kardis. I want to set the people free!

And then what?

Thy will be done?

Water is power.

You gotta control it!

You're gonna be just like Kardis.


- Bazil.
- I know where the water is.

- I've seen it!
- Where is it?

There, beyond the mountain.

You're lying to me. I'll have your heart.

Don't be a fool. This is what we've been waiting for! Let's go!

Follow me!

I... just wanted to thank you.


Take care, kid.

The patrol is back... and Bazil's not with 'em.


The lion.


Into your tanks!

Move them out!

Commence fire!

Take cover! Man your posts!

Stay down!... Come on, Kardis!

Dear God, what's happening out there?

It's all right, my friend. I'll take care of you. It's OK, don't worry. Get the bleeding to stop. Rest here a while.

Take cover, take cover!

Have you seen Bandit?


Don't panic! Whatever you do, don't panic!

- They're bombing us!
- Got to get out of here! Let me out!

Follow me! They need us up front!

All of you - get out of there!


Thunder One. Come in, Thunder One.

Come in, Thunder One.

Thunder Two.

Thunder Three.
