Summary
It's official : We're facing a problem over water! Or so they say. But what exactly is the nature of the problem? This film points to concrete examples and starts off with a paradox: the inhabitants of a village in Mali live on 6 litres of water per day and person, while at the same moment in Barcelona, the authorities fear a water shortage - each citizen uses on average 120 litres per day! This example clearly demonstrates that the definition of need and shortage is a question of proportion. The film investigates in Spain, Mali and Mexico and does not point towards any 'culprits' but reminds us that water shortage is rarely only a question of resource. What if it were, above all, a question of democracy?
