The new film “Young Ones” depicts a very disturbing, though perhaps not too distant future, where water is so scarce that people wash their dishes with dirt.

"Young Ones" tells the story through the eyes of two men and a 14-year-old boy, and how they will fight to survive.

The film is written and directed by Jake Paltrow, and stars Nicholas Hoult, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Michael Shannon.
