Many documentaries have focused on the various way the Earth’s water has become polluted and profaned. This program esplores the sacred nature of this precious gift which is everywhere, surrounding us, enveloping our lives and those of every other living thing. Without water there would be no plants, no food, no fish, no birds, no people, no life.
Six unique men and women share their experiences and insights about water, the most abundant and fundamental element of the Earth. Throughout the program are images of water in all its forms—clouds, snow, rain, ice, rivers,, lakes and oceans—culminating in a four-minute montage of beauty set to the inspiring music of David Foster.
