What’s it like to live without running water? In Peru’s sprawling capital, Lima, this is the everyday reality for 1.5 million children and adults, forced to pay up to a week’s salary for just one day’s water. And the problem isn’t confined to the capital. Climate change is partly to blame, but in this film we explore how European consumers are making this crisis worse. The fruit and vegetables – avocados, asparagus, exotic fruit – which end up on our supermarket shelves are literally sucking Peru’s land dry.
