The Water Engine, written by David Mamet, is a story of a young inventor (Charles Lang) who's found a way to run an engine on distilled water. Written as a radio play set in the 1930’s, the story follows Charles Lang as he battles to get his engine from concept to production. Lang is courted by crooked lawyers attempting to buy the invention from him on behalf of 'certain business interests'. Refusing, he is threatened and when he attempts to give his story to the newspapers, things go array.
