This documentary reveals the extraordinary beauty and complex toxicity of the Great Lakes, the largest remaining supply of fresh water (20 percent) on Earth. From the ornate fountains of Chicago to the sewers of Windsor, viewers are carried through marsh and pipe, across pounding waves and through thunder clouds on a journey that provides an unprecedented view of an incredible ecosystem rarely seen by the city dwellers who form much of its population. Along the way, Waterlife shows viewers the Great Lakes as they might appear to a seagull, a fish, or a water molecule...and from a myriad of other amazing perspectives.
