The film follows a group of activists over more than 300 km as they walk the course of the Los Angeles Aqueduct from the Central Valley to Los Angeles. The path takes them past dried-up lakes, partly through arid landscapes, where they again and again meet local residents who have directly experienced the changes of the last decades and describe them. Although the viaduct is mostly piped, this "pilgrimage with water" shows in magnificent pictures the irreplaceable importance of fresh water for all land life on earth and meets people whose ideas and processes help to stop wasting fresh water but to use it sparingly, because fresh water is scarce.
