Examines how the nature and politics of water transportation impact a growing number of people and enterprises around the world who depend on reliable water delivery. Visits the Massai in the Rift Valley in Africa where the ritual of water transportation is at the very core of life, and Santiago, Chile where an increase in water prices will help fund the decontamination of local rivers. Discusses the controversial issue of water pricing in diverse communities throughout the world, the prices charged by traditional water bearers in a bustling enclave in India, and the transition from governmental control of water to privatization in Great Britain.
