The film follows the activities of internationally known river protector Mark Angelo in different parts of the world, focusing on one of the most polluting industries, the fashion industry. It is a thought-provoking documentary that talks about river pollution and its impact on humanity, as well as possible solutions that instill hope for a more sustainable future. The voice behind the scenes is actor and director and clean water supporter Jason Priestley.

Irresponsible dumping of toxic chemical compounds from the fashion industry's production process into river water pollutes rivers and affects the people whose daily lives depend on them. The film points out how the production of clothes for all of us comes at the cost of destroying important rivers and emphasizes the need for major changes in the textile industry, especially tapping the conscience of the fashion industry giants who have the power to do something about it.

Leather artist Stella Soomlais will make an introduction to the film screenings.
