This documentary explores the growing global water crisis and its staggering toll of some 14,000 quiet preventable deaths per day. Focusing on China, the Middle East, Africa, India, and the United States, Running Dry presents compelling arguments for international cooperation on water issues and highlights some promising grassroots programs to improve access to safe water.

Documentary about 3rd world fresh water crisis of lack of water, or pollution of usable water, and implications of present course of no action. Causes of political instability. Critical of USA because we have water, and have planned for water use. Speakers are world leaders in this field, Interesting that no mention is made about over population, nor countries' governments to implement remedies. Solutions proposed are quite general, Narrator makes a plea for everyone to get involved in the world crisis..... No other references to the numbers the movie gives. Narrated by Jane Seymour, for the organization www.runningdry.org.
