From the production of plastic, to the ocean in which so many bottles end up, this ... documentary follows the bottled water trail through the communities which are the unwitting chips on the corporate table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this ... film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public's right to water."--Container.
