Drinking bottled water is not part of a healthy life. It damages our health and the future of our planet's resources.

From the producers of "Who Killed the Electric Car?" and "I.O.U.S.A." this award-winning film is an unflinching examination of the big business of bottled water. This timely documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity – our water. From the plastic
production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end up, this inspiring documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table.

"With style, verve and righteous anger, the film exposes the bottled water industry's role in suckering the public, harming our health, accelerating climate change, contributing to overall pollution and increasing America's dependence on fossil fuels. All while gouging consumers with exorbitant and indefensible prices."
– Peter Rothberg, The Nation
