“Plumbing the Rights, Part I” focuses on the issue of water as common property and a right that is indistinguishable from the right to life. The film documents local communities from India and South Africa striving to maintain this right in the face of official opposition. In the Indian state of Rajasthan, where community efforts have revived traditional water harvesting structures, called johads, villagers of Lava ka Baas are resisting the state government's move to destroy their johad. In South Africa, official curb on access to water for people who cannot pay for it is forcing communities take the water illegally.
