    • Synopsis
    • In our countries, water runs abundantly.
      In Europe, even though water gets more and more expensive, we tend to believe it's a common belonging, an endless resource, almost forgetting it's essential to human beings.
      We're wasting it!
      In some countries, like Morocco, water is a business for wealthy people: if you have the money, you dig to find the water.
      Deeper and deeper, because the level of the ground water decreases year after year, due to the tourism industry, the agriculture, the private corporations, and more.
      The film is about the liberalization of this good, vital to all men. It's about water becoming a commercialized food product.
