This is a powerful film about water, how we have less and less water all the time and how what we do have is contaminated. The evidence is a bit overwhelming. The situation is quite serious. I would have liked to have been given some ideas on what we can do to make the situation better. I was left feeling rather helpless. In spite of that, I recommend this film; we need to know what is happening around the world; we need to try to do something about this.
