A, B, C and D share a water supply, part of an intrastucture supplied by X. The water supply has a leak. While B and C are friendly, D won’t talk to C, and A won’t talk to B, C or D.  A and D barely even leave their houses. Indeed, the son of A had a period of shouting death threats through the wall at B. X, meanwhile, takes no responsibility for any of it.

Will the leak ever get fixed or will hundreds of litres of water keep pouring down the pavement?
