    • Synopsis
    • Do you know how to turn ordinary water into a billion-dollar business? In Switzerland, one company has developed this art to perfection: Nestlé. It dominates the global business in bottled water. Swiss journalist Res Gehringer has investigated
      this money-making phenomena. Nestlé refused to cooperate, on the pretext that
      it was „the wrong film at the wrong time“. So Gehringer went on a journey of exploration, researching the story in the USA, Nigeria and Pakistan. His journey into the world of bottled water reveals the schemes and strategies of the most powerful food and beverage company on our planet.
