“He who wants water must be prepared to kill for it” an old Arab saying goes. At the beginning of the 21st century water, the ancient source of life, already is in short supply all over the world. From the heart of Africa to the Aral Sea in the Kazakh steppe the film portrays different people's lives and their struggle for water and survival.
