In Kenya's Western Province, most drinking water is contaminated. The wood many Kenyans use to boil water to make it safe is becoming increasingly valuable. Women and girls, who bear the responsibility for finding water and wood, often miss school or work to find these resources. Some are even victims of sexual violence. However, waterborne illness remains a daily - and life-threatening - reality for them and their families. The film introduces audiences to the inspiring people who face these hardships, and explores one company's innovative solution for improving the health of millions of Kenyans and the environment in which they live.
