An American business man goes through his daily routine, using water as a means to cleanse and hydrate. It is not until he receives a significant postcard that his eyes are opened to see beyond his own self and into the lives of people struggling to find a sanitary water supply. In Africa, a mother and daughter spend their day walking a long distance to reach a dirty watering hole that is also used by local animals. The poor quality of this water will eventually lead to the woman and child becoming sick. In the 21st century, no one should have to suffer in this manner.
