This documentary delves into the experiences of four older people whose lives were marked by the rivers, lakes and canals of Mexico City, when water was much more present in the metropolitan area than it is today. This documentary seeks to narrate how we have lived and coexisted with water through the eyes of those who have witnessed the profound transformations of a capital which slowly expelled water and replaced it by layers of concrete. The multi-vocal narrative will map the evanescent and juxtaposing memories of these older people, telling the everyday story of water depletion in Mexico City.
