Like Water is a lighthearted story fused with animation which captures the work of 73-year-old martial arts sensei, Togieda Flowers, who since 1977 has taught karate to Cape Flats youth, who seek a positive outlet to express themselves and an escape from gang violence. The story follows six-year-old Nawar Taliep, who represents the future generations that Sense Togieda Flowers hopes to nurture in order to develop strong characters.
