Since 1775, the year of the “shot heard round the world,” Concord, Massachusetts has been known for its revolutionary spirit. In 2014, that spirit lives on—in eighty-four-year-old Concord resident Jean Hill, a woman fighting against a modern-day enemy: single-serve plastic water bottles. Facing strong opposition from local businesses as well as the large and powerful bottled water industry, Jean engages in a three-year battle and what may be America’s first environmental crusade to ban the sale of bottled water. A perfect blend of harsh realism and inspiring idealism, this film will motivate everyone who watches it.
