Water is earth’s most valuable resource. Cities are powered by it, agriculture and other industries depend on it, and all living things need it to survive. But instead of treating it with care, it has been allowed to become polluted with toxic chemicals and agricultural and industrial waste. As is becoming increasingly apparent, it is very possible that in the near future there won’t be enough water to sustain life on the planet.

From the team behind An Inconvenient Truth and Food, Inc., Last Call at the Oasis illuminates the vital role water plays in our lives, exposes the defects in the current system, shows communities already struggling with its ill-effects and examines ways in which the situation might be managed. The documentary features activist Erin Brockovich, respected water experts Peter Gleick, Jay Famiglietti, and Robert Glennon, as well as social entrepreneurs championing revolutionary solutions.
