  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
After separating from her husband, Dahlia (Connelly) and her daughter Ceci (Gade) move into a run-down apartment. Although Dahlia struggles with debilitating migraines and nightmares from her childhood, she struggles to make ends meet and provide a good life for her daughter. But when Dark Water begins seeping from the apartment above theirs, Dahlia soon learns that her troubles cannot be fixed by calling a plumber. Based upon Koji Suzuki's novel "Honogurai Mizuno Soko Kara" and the Hideo Nakata film "Dark Water." (Suzanne Hodges)
