Strictly Discs

This documentary tells the story of the worst drought ever to occur in South Africa between 2015 and 2018. Because of irregular rainfalls, the government was forced to ask citizens to reduce drastically water consumption down to just 50 liters per person, per day. Whilst strategies carried out by the most ingenious citizens in order to save water have led to good results, on the other side, the destiny of agriculture and the poorest fringe of the population is still unknown, giving rise to disputes around the city. However, citizens got used to changing their lifestyles, wasting less water. What the city of Cape Town did to deal with the drought has never been done in the world. The entire situation provides a lesson that other countries can learn from South Africa, even though they may not run out of water. So is it possible to live a 50-litre life?
