Cape Town, like much of South Africa, is currently in the midst its worst drought in two decades, yet millions of litres of naturally occurring fresh water run under the city's streets, to be dumped straight into the sea, every day. This film aims to raise awareness of this almost criminally neglected, but desperately needed, resource, in the hope that it might be reclaimed to help sustain Cape Town's booming, and increasingly water-stressed, population.
